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.

Betty Jo


Liz Jones is the designer/maker behind some fabulous quirky pieces. I have had my eye on her designs for a little while now, having spotted them online and in stores in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. I love her use of laminate and other op shop finds. She works her magic on these neglected treaures to make brooches and necklaces that are brimming with personality.

Having contacted me the other day and I have to say Liz is as friendly as her work. This led me to wonder how much we are like the work we make? Is it a reflection of who we are, or maybe rather who we would like to be? Anyway that is just something to think about.

Also, Liz did say she would never have a blog, but she has recently changed her mind, like so many of us!

Hey Liz someone I know was wearing one of your brooches today and it made me want one BAD (actually I always did want one/heaps)!
