About Liana

Brisbane, Australia
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.

What's In The Box?

The wonderful Miss Davern has sent me a parcel all the way from Estonia. I am a lucky girl. The box is filled with daisy-like plastic candle holders. I'm not sure what I'll do with these yet but I'm sure I'll think of something!

Anna is someone I admired for many reasons. A few of these are that her work is fabulously inventive and perfectly constructed, she is thoughtful, generous and funny too! But perhaps most importantly, she has a CAN DO attitude. You really aren't going to get too far in these creative spheres if you let the roadblocks stop you. I believe you need to find your way around them, again and again. When Anna didn't get any hoped for funding for a residency in Estonian she found a way to get there on her own steam.

I know she will make it big time - I have no doubt whatsoever. As you-know-who said, JUST DO IT.

P.S I am in no way saying nice things because Miss Davern is now sending me a postcard she found of a Tupperware meeting from the 50's - too cool!
