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.

Oh Blogging!

Oh I haven't been blogging much lately! Why? Hmmmmm Just busy I guess. Well, that is true, but it certainly isn't the only reason, because that sure isn't anything new. Hmmmm I think the core of it is that I've been spending much of my online time on Facebook.

Being always interested in how these online things work, particularly for business, I just tend to become a bit obsessed until I come to some kind of understanding about it all. I don't try to do that, it just happens. Also honestly it can be a little tricky juggling all those balls in the air - Facebook, website, etsy, blog, MySpace, and Twitter (haven't really started with that yet - but I will!).

Anyway I've decided Facebook is certainly excellent for networking, and networking is central to business success. Since one of my favourite things is meeting new people I find this aspect enjoyable. Also it has helped me get over my shyness. Maybe I don't appear shy but it really wasn't that long ago that I wouldn't have my photograph taken, less alone put one online for all the world to see! Being shy certainly isn't good for business. You have to put yourself out there, again and again! You just do.

Now that I've come to some understanding about the Facebook thing I think I'll move on to something else. I haven't really worked out how to make MySpace work fully for me and that Twitter thing? Or maybe I'll just get into blogging again more regularly. Sometimes I want to go on a bit, and let's face it, Facebook just isn't the place for that!
