- 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.

I'm Such a Sucker For a Hair Thingamebob
A quick mention that Daneve of Chicuff is running a competition. I stopped by there yesterday in my effort to visit more blogs and show a little more support to those that support me. I have to admit I have bit a bit blog slack for quite some time. There are just so many blogs these days that I have often found the thought of visiting them a little overwhelming. Where to start? Of course I decided to start with the people that have supported me (and there are lots of you) would be best. Already I have learnt so much, which of course is the other great reason to visit blogs!
I love the Chicuff motto 'Don't discard it...have fun & be CREATIVE!' Also I learnt this, from her blog, about her designs 'Chicuff by Daneve' is unique, wearable art transformed from Recycled Environmental "Green" bags. My items use materials that have come to its end as a product. Its "used by date" has expired and can no longer be used in the desired way any more. Behind my creations there is also an element of rescue. It seems a shame to discard something that was once useful and can still be useful if recycled. There is an idea of transformation, something that is old becoming new again. Each piece is individual with a unique past, present & future story of its own.
I'd say we have more than a few things in common.
Anyway back to the competition! As much as I would LOVE TO WIN the gorgeous headband pictured above, and sharing this competion will no doubt deminish my chances, I think it is only fair that I share. Go here to win!
