- 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.

Ice Cream Jewellery
Tomorrow night, if you don't already know I'm having a show at Movenpick South Bank . I'm excited about it because ice cream and my jewellery do seem like such a great match. Lollies...Tupperware...ice cream...it always seems to be something food related. Well I guess when all the jewellery you make looks edible, that's what happens!
Tomorrow night, along with all the delicious Movenpick ice cream, I'll be launching a new jewellery range. I'll be incorporating many of the materials I already use, and some of the things I love most. I'll be mixing vintage beads, buttons, kewpie dolls images, and tape measures, with hand moulded resin pieces.
Resin is something that I have been wanting to try for quiet some time. As you may remember my Father was a jeweller. My very first jewellery memory was of him making brightly coloured resin brooches in the room next to my bedroom (obviously OHS wasn't such an issue than!).
I know many of you are coming along to the event. For those of you who are just too far away I'll be posting up lots of images soon.
