- 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.

Tamsin Howells Likes lollies Too
UK jewellery designer Tamsin Howells contacted me the other day to say she loved my work. Thank you Tamsin and right back at you. I took this opportunity to find out more about her methods.
Tamsin says she uses a lamination technique that employs resin to sandwich together two sheets of plastic (acrylic) with vintage fabrics and lolly wrappers trapped in the centre. The fabric pieces are really lovely but I do especially love the use of "sweets" wrappers, as seen in the bird series.
"I adore colour and feel by wearing a splash of colour around your neck or wrist can lift up an outfit and one’s mood", says Tamsin. I'll have to say that I agree there too!
