19.09.21 I'M BACK!
Above is a little compilation of my artistic journey so far. I chose a beautiful little piece of music that I adore and really resonates with me and my journey. Turn the volume up.
SO WHERE HAVE I BEEN?
Well when one door closes another one opens, or so the saying goes. Ours was down the hall a bit, over to the left, out through the window, down the back yard, and over the fence. It was across the road, through the river, down the highway, into the city, through 5 different homes, back down a highway, over to the East and through some winding country roads but there it was and it was like opening a door to heaven. I am grateful, as it was during this time that I was building something inside, even though I had no awareness of it. Something was planted, manifested and started growing. I have more clarity and vision than I ever have before and cannot wait to start sharing it.
THE ORIGINAL INSPIRATION FOR JEWELLERY
I was initially inspired to create stud earrings similar to a beautiful pair my mother brought back from Fiji in the 70’s. I always adored them and have been able to recreate that style. I am very careful with the resin to create a ‘dome’ effect so the beauty of the papers really stands out.
What started out as a great little seller at the markets has now very quickly expanded to boutiques and online. My original stud earrings and the papers and fabrics I use stand the test of time and unique to me. I love the fact that I can make pieces for many different personalities and styles.
My imagination and creativity is constantly evolving and now I am also creating beautiful statement earrings. Over the years, my exploration with resins and colours has now allowed me to create stunning pieces of jewellery. Most of my statement earrings are on of a kind designs, l individually hand painted.
My art is me, its mine and a moment in time. Created after discovering the designs I was making for my jewellery were just to beautiful to not be up on a wall! All of them inspired by a memory and experience, a camping trip to the beautiful and haunting Kennedy Ranges in the Gascoyne, Western Australia. A run down a suburban street in Perth. A blustery winters weekend end away to our beautiful Margaret River region.
I am currently working on a new collection which should be ready around late October 2021.
