About

ANTIPASTEL is about sharing the joy of colour!

Michaela Stone drew, sang and acted her way through the better part of 20 years and attended a performing arts high school, which was only encouraging. Realising, however, the reality of searching for work as an actor, she decided to pursue another creative outlet: design (specifically, visual communication).

Fast forward five years and we have a fresh graduate of the University of Technology, Sydney. Trained in illustration, animation and graphic design, among other things, Michaela had learned to tailor her talents to design briefs to serve outside purposes.

Things changed when she met prominent Sydney jewellerymaker, Therese Lyons (AKA Ena and Albert), who encouraged her to let her creativity run free and to open an Etsy store. ANTIPASTEL, previously her internet username, seems logical in its application to Michaela's crafty exploits: she loves colour, and lots of it. Taken literally, Michaela terms her craft as "a smorgasbord of bright, fun creations".

Michaela admires the work of her friend and crafty colleague, Ena and Albert, and the many productive collabs of Australian fashion icons Romance Was Born (Del Kathryn Barton, anyone?). She is forever in awe of Rihanna's ability to pull off any hairstyle.

Other interesting facts include Michaela's early urges to sing/act, spurned by her first lead role as Rudolf in the Kindergarten Christmas play. She can eyebrow dance to Coolio's "1, 2, 3, 4" and beatbox to Justin Timberlake's "Rock Your Body".

This sense of fun and humour is best encapsulated by Michaela's eclectic, colourful ANTIPASTEL offering. Among the mix you'll find illustrated handmade jewellery, keyrings and art prints.
