- 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.

Watching French Films & Practising Cool Detachment
Perhaps you have noticed that I have been a little quiet lately. I haven't been blogging as much, and I've missed sending out the odd newsletter or two! In the past I would have worried excessively about such things. But not so much now these days. Lately I have felt like pulling back a little from all the mad rush of the last few years. I never really gave myself much of a break and I think I really needed a little time out. At times it felt like there wasn't anytime to draw breath and just be quiet and reflective.
Now I am giving myself that time, and it feels pretty good. I'm just living my life. Sometimes that just means watching French films, rearranging furniture, and having a drink with my friends on a Sunday afternoon. This doesn't mean that I feel any less ambitious than I have in the past. Believe me I do have some exciting design plans underway. But I am generally a little more patient about all of this. I feel like I am over the 'nothing amazing is happening to me RIGHT NOW so I better make something amazing happen!' panic, that used to be my mantra.
I always wanted a metallic green Vespa, but this metallic pink Vespa is so much better! Snap taken on a recent day trip with my friend to the Gold Coast.
