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.

Happy Birthday


I just wanted to take a moment to wish PLASTIC a very Happy Birthday, as this versatile material is 100 yrs old this year. Belgian-American chemist Leo Baekeland created the first synthetic plastic - Bakelite, in 1907.

What is a birthday without presents - right? So I bought myself a couple of Lea Stein celluloid brooches in celebration.
