My contemporary jewellery is made with upcycled leather and fabric swatches and offcuts donated by local artisans, including a furniture maker and a shoemaker! I love creating unique pieces of jewellery while reducing waste and extending the use of resources. For my customers, it means owning something original and supporting an eco-friendly shopping habit.

About EchidnaArtandCards

On Etsy since 2012

Contemporary Jewellery | Upcycled and Sustainable

I was a science and visual arts educator in Canada. When we came to Australia, I decided to use my background to make art. Jewellery making started in a most serendipitous way.

One day, I was given a pile of leather swatches by a local furniture maker, who thought I could use the "waste" from his shop for art. Everyday, I try my best to live a low waste lifestyle; so I couldn't stand seeing these perfectly usable pieces binned. Creating jewellery from leather samples seemed to be a natural extension. Now my materials include discontinued leather and fabric swatches, offcuts from a local shoemaker, and even the tiniest scraps from my own jewellery making. Nothing is wasted. My work supports a zero waste lifestyle and is an expression of care for the environment.

I love creating original, distinctive and sustainable pieces for customers to express their personal style. Seek originality, choose sustainability and be the difference!

    I work with different media but my passion is jewellery making. Each piece is crafted with sustainability in mind and designed to inspire and to be enjoyed.
