Announcement    Just putting the finishing touches to some super soft and warm scarves and woolly headbands. Not to mention the new earrings and pendant necklaces I have finished, just at the photo and uploading stage. My pieces are often so much nicer than the photo may indicate due to my average photo-taking abilities..... we can't be great at everything girls!

Handcrafted - From Imagination to Reality

Violet Matters was created from my love of handcrafting. I am curious by nature, equal parts dreamer and optimist, possessed with a joyful soul that likes to dream large and laugh loud. I’m all about creating unique one-of-a-kind pieces and of allowing my creative spirit to fly wherever it wants.

I love creating beautiful things with my own two hands, and of seeing my ideas come to life. My crafting skills are largely a mix of self-taught combined with skills taught and passed down by creative Australian women. I grew up in country NSW and handcrafting was a normal part of my everyday life, as demonstrated by both male and female role models and I love that I am following on that tradition. My mother and older female relatives, often made all of our clothes, knitted every winter jumper, glove, scarf, and beanie. If it could be handcrafted - they would make it. I think that like many others my ideas often outweigh my skill – but I have discovered that the joy is in the doing, the experimenting, the learning, the trying, and the perfecting and these things are made possible by my dogged determination. I love to create unique jewelry pieces, particularly cameos and cabochons.

Over the last year, I have re-discovered my love of pottery and I am currently busy honing my skills to create my own clay pendants and creative hand-crafted clay works. Unfortunately, COVID has put a halt on my pottery with the studio that I use closed until further notice.

One thing that all of this COVID self isolation has given me is lots and lots of time to knit. I love to knit and have created a range of unique ‘fuggly-snugglys’ – one-of-a-kind scarves and beanies that are so daggy they are totally cool. I love experimenting with different wools to create something truly awesome. You’ll often see a lot of pom poms scattered amongst my works as I am currently addicted to them…. I know, kind of weird. I also like experimenting with creating my own felt from Australian Merino dyed wool, it’s somewhat labor-intensive but the results are stunning. I’ve got a goal to create a range of felt scarves and wraps.

Wishing you a creative day and a joyful heart,
