- My studio is located in Brisbane, Australia. For the past 10 years I’ve been enjoying creating jewellery designs from an array of mundane materials. Tupperware and knitting needles have remained a firm favourite. My designs have been published numerous times, graced the shelves of many wonderful galleries and stores and been worn by those whose aren’t afraid of colour and attention. All of which I am very grateful for. For several years I’ve also been fortunate enough to work with many businesses as a coach and workshop facilitator.

Funny Plastic People
"The most complete creative freedom – the greatest achievement in contemporary jewellery - was the discovery of plastic.." so says Graziella Folchini Grassetto. I'm with you Graziella. Read the rest of the presentation here.
Listed below are a couple of my favourite top notch plastic jewellers. They may not only use plastic, but the use of it seems to be an important part of their practice. Plus they all have a sense of humour that seems central to what they do and to the kind of jewellery they make.
