Announcement   Hello and welcome.
Nu4uCreative is about promoting and modelling how we can nurture our planet, through creative recycling.
Because I believe in modelling what we preach and value, my priority is to ensure as much as possible of each handmade piece, is recycled [ I use jewelry findings sourced from a company specializing in recycling old silver wherever possible].
Our feature marine debris jewelry, made from debris and micro plastics collected off beaches, showcases the message about the dangers of micro plastics and waste within our oceans.
Wearing these unique, one off pieces, not only helps us spread the word about nurturing our oceans, but also allows you to make your own fashion statement. An ethical statement as well!
Any natural materials I use, have been grown or collected locally and processed by me. Recycled, man made materials such as fabric have also been collected and reprocessed by me.
To build a connection with you and your new piece, each item also brings with it a card explaining a little about itself and the recycled materials it has been made from.
For those of you who want to try your own hand at some creative recycling, I also provide " How to .." tutorials, so that you too, can help nurture our planet while creating with natural and recycled materials.
I hope all my pieces are fun to have and own.
I certainly had fun making them!
Thank you for visiting my shop.

About

One off, hand made jewelry and home decor recreated from recycled and unexpected materials.

Nu4U came about after a long period of incubation.
Owning my own shop had always been a secret dream of mine, but life and work took up all my time. I was lucky, though, to have a wonderful family and group of friends who, over time, encouraged and nurtured my dream to escape into my art and share my pieces.
Due to my health, I am allergic to a number of chemicals and additives, so it was a natural progression for me to begin using natural, recycled materials to create and work with. This automatically reinforced my philosophy of caring for our environment as well as our own health by being chemical free and conscious of what we use and eat in our daily lives.
I am still evolving as an artist / artisan, so be prepared for surprises in my shop as I continue to develop my skills.
Living on the Sunshine Coast is also a bonus for me as I have easy access to a range of natural and interesting materials.
I can easily access marine debris and micro plastics along the beaches which are 20 minutes from my home or gather fishing line and netting from the commercial fishing boats which work off the coast. I am also lucky to live with my family on 3/4 acre in the Blackall Range hinterland overlooking these beaches, where my garden, full of native trees, shrubs and a creek, provides me with wild bird feathers, vines, seeds and various leaves and fronds.
I enjoy sharing my ideas and discoveries with family and friends, though I can get a bit over excited according to them. I love the fact that they humor me [ even if they don't like what I'm enthusing over]!
I hope you enjoy my shop and have fun checking out my various artistic experiments. With love, Jo

Welcome to Nu 4 U Designs. It is my pleasure to provide you with unique, one of a kind jewelery and home decor pieces to brighten up your day.

Please keep in mind that each piece is handmade from recycled materials, so will have both character and history, unlike store bought, mass produced items. I try to choose quality, recycled materials, to reassemble into my quirky pieces, but please be prepared for the occasional, charming imperfection.
