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.

Pecha Kucha

I went along to Pecha Kucha last night and loved it. It is on every month at the Brisbane Powerhouse and will definitely be a regular date in my diary from now on.

Pecha Kucha really is a kind of show and tell for adults. A cross section of creatives show and discuss 20 slides for 20 seconds each. With the talk being over in 6 minutes and 40 seconds there is just no chance to get bored!

It feels important to me right now to engage with my community and become a part of it. Also I want to see what others in a range of related industries are doing. I find that really inspiring. I left last night feeling inspired.

These events are happening in major cities worldwide so check them out if you can. It is worth a look.

Maybe one day I'll put my hand up to present one too. Maybe.

Thanks for the info on this night... sounds like something I'd be very interested in. I will have to go along to the next one!

Love your jewellery btw... I am a jewellery designer too (www.kittycatblack.com) and it's cool to see other jewellery designers in Brisbane doing cool things. :)

Yes come along to the next one, and if you happen to recognise me do say hi!

You are doing some interesting work. Really niche, which I think is excellent. You do need to stand out from the crowd.

Actually that goes for anyone. If you see me there (& I will be there) come and say hello. Half the point in going is to network.
