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.

Sydney Finders Keepers Market

I'm off to Sydney next month to participate in the Finders Keepers market. This will be the first time I've sold my jewellery at a market in Sydney. Besides the 10pm finish on Friday night (I am such a Nana so this is way past my usual bedtime) I'm really looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and seeing something new. Actually I'm hoping to see lots of new and interesting designers and makers.

As well as a large selection of my classic pieces, there will be brand new never seen before and one of a kind designs. Plus there will be exclusive market only specials. If you are in Sydney I hope you'll come by and say hi!
