- 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.

Goodness, I got a mention over the weekend in the Denver Post & Seattle Times as a trend to watch in 2008! I know a lot of us are doing this sort of thing - turning 'recycling into fashion', and have been doing it for a while now! I guess that is why it has finally become a trend! These things can take a while to hit mainstream.
Part of the article:
Home trends fade to blue, but still eco-friendly
Advertising conglomerate JWT predicts the following for the home:
Blue replaces green as the environmental movement's color du jour. Falling in line with Pantone color forecasters, the company also dubbed "blue iris," or cobalt tinged with purple, as the new year's trendy new hue. Just like last year's coffeehouse browns and seafoam greens, expect new furnishings in this shade.
Recycling into fashion. Environmentalism makes its way into your closet this year, according to JWT. Expect to see even more products like Liana Kabel's "Tupperware Necklace" (lianakabel.com), recycled aluminum jewelry (elsewares.com) and bamboo jeans (undesigned.com).
In case you are interested here is JWT's full list of 80 things to watch in 2008.
