Here are some designs I have been working on today in the studio. I sometimes like to move away from precious metals and play with non-precious chain, stones and random beads I have found along the way. Today I used some bits and pieces I had picked up in Cairns when I lived there in 2002/2003 - so yes, I am a collector - but you never know when something might come in handy...

Well, I have finally figured out what makes me most happy - bashing metal. So, here are a few of my latest pieces...
Also, I am now stocking a fabulous shop in Daylesford called Can't Think Straight. Run by the gorgeous Mim and her partner Tiana they stock lots of green/recycled accessories and art made by LGBTIQ artists. Check out their website!

The Nicholas Building (where I am fortunately located) Open Studios on 19 & 20 August was a great success! We had lots of people come through and I had been working very hard to make some special pieces for the event.
Arni Paras, one of my favourite under-discovered Melbs jewellers also came on board and displayed some of his gorgeous handcrafted pieces...the drop earrings got A LOT of attention! See this link for some pics.
On the way to the studio on Thursday I came across a little Italian man in Brunswick pruning his fruit trees...so I managed to wangle a few branches which made a pretty nice spring display!
My lovely man made sure I was well fed in all the craziness, bringing pizza all the way from Bundoora on Friday night.
