My mum bought me my first ever ring from a street market in Melbourne, it is silver with a black onyx, very cool for a teenager.
There begun my love for handmade jewellery and I have amassed many great pieces over the years. My mum continues to add to my collection and now I also add to hers, it is something that we share.
I blame my maternal grandmother, she was a jewellery collector too!
There was a time, when I was interested in only silver and semi precious stones and wouldn't touch anything else but I'm less picky and open to new things!
(When I was 18 I knew everything, now I know nothing and learn along the way)
So I have started what a call the craft jewellery collection, that I wear everyday! (depending on outfit)
I'm an Art teacher, we are meant to inspire and lead the way!

Handmade, hand painted porcelain jewellery- my favourite!
And this is why!
Their work is so close to my own pottery aesthetic that I openly adore their work and secretly wish I had of thought of it.
My Hand carved porcelain lidded form and their pressed pattern work, we are twins!
My work is circa 2007, completed months before my son was born, missed that bandwagon!
If you are due to start another collection?
I highly recommend the craft jewellery collection, artworks as adornments!
