Revisiting the Australian Landscape

Currently at Redland Art Gallery I am participating in the exhibition, 'Revisiting the Australian Landscape, Interpreting the Landscape on an Intimate Scale'. It features some fantastic jewellery artists and is sure to be a fantastic show.

The Midas Touch...

This is the first time I have tried my ring design in 9ct Yellow Gold. It was lovely to work with, and now I've had a taste I'm going to find it hard to go back to silver!


After experimenting with pearls in the Kyoto Nouveau collection, I will now be offering my pieces with facetted onyx. I think the facets create a little more glamour! All of my necklaces that feature beads are hand knotted.

The Kyoto Nouveau Collection is my current collection within my jewellery identity 'Poetics of Space' in conjunction with fellow jeweller Eleisha Nylund. All of my pieces are made in a tarnish resist sterling silver and semi-precious beads. Pieces can be commissioned in gold on request.

Poetics of Space at First In Style



As some of you may know, myself and fellow jewellery artist Eleisha Nylund have newly formed our own company 'Poetics of Space Contemporary Jewellery'. As such, we will be wholesaling a new collection of works which will debut at Sydney's Life In Style Show from February 25th-28th. We will be showcasing our collections in the 'First in Style' curated design space which aims to showcase some of the Australia's brightest emerging designers. For more information, visit Seeing as it is just over a month away we are both extremely busy making and photographing the new works! Therefore in the coming weeks I will be posting some of these new images both on my blog, and, so stay tuned!
