About

I have always been a person who loves to create, I have always looked at things and thought "how can I make that myself?" or "I would buy this right now if only it had less this, or more that, or was this colour...." So my adventures in jewellery making started out just that way, I bought a necklace at a regular store but wasn't totally happy with it and wanted to tweak it. So I bought a few different pairs of pliers and some beads and set to work. When I was done, a few of my friends saw it and wanted one just like it. Soon I was making all kinds of necklaces, earrings and bracelets and decided I better start selling them.

My inspiration comes from all over, from natural things like rocks, trees and plants, to man made things I've found like beach glass. I also love to repurpose items like old records and dollhouse items.

The t-shirt side of the business started out much the same way, my husband and I wanted to make some gifts for the members of his band - so I went out and got a silk screening kit and figured out how to make t-shirts - between the 2 of us we came up with a few cheeky designs and next thing you know, people were requesting them!

Over the past 6 months or so, I've been taking some silversmith classes to expand my knowledge and business and I have really found my purpose! I think I was meant to play with metal all day! I absolutely love it! Please keep watch for some of my silversmith work!

My dream is, of course, what every handmakers dream is, and that is to quit my day job and make Rock On my full time venture. Until then, the day job pays the bills and I must truck on.
