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.

Roller Derby Girl

I am so making roller derby our family sport. That's what I have been telling my girls for a while now. I'm probably not that keen to play, or to have them play, but I am super keen to go to a bout. This keen interest has increased since listening to a roller derby girl, aka Evil Doll, talk at Wednesday night's Pecha Kucha. I found her inspiring. She obviously loved what she did, but also had a real enthusiasm and commitment to giving back local communities. It was also to the sport's apparent inclusiveness that I responded to. It seems like they'll welcome all women.
