- 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.

Here are the first pics of my new brooch design. I do seem to have a bit of a thing for a flower brooch, as I have designed a few over the years. These are currently my favourite. I wanted to make some brooches that could be worn as a single, or as a group, and still look great. I think these do.
The brooches are made from some lovely plastic material scrap. After some experimentation with shaping the material to retain a petal shape, they seem to have really come together.
I'm a bit excited with my new design, but I'm even more excited because I am playing with some other new materials, with more new designs coming soon!
