Announcement    Our Jewellery - Original Designs | Sustainable | Zero Waste
Our photography has moved to www.TheWanderingEchidna.etsy.com . Do check out our prints and cards there!

Original and Sustainable
My art jewellery pieces are distinctive designs 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 eliminating waste and continuing the use of resources. For my customers, it means that they own something that no one else has because no two pieces of art jewellery are ever the same.

Upcycled or Local
I also have a range of simple everyday chokers and other jewellery designs, using reclaimed beads and materials that are locally sourced. Recycling is renewing, and I support local businesses as much as possible.

Zero Waste Art Jewellery | Sustainability is the Difference

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. He thought I could use the "waste" from his shop for art. I couldn't stand seeing them binned even though I didn't know what to do with them at the time. Since selling my first leather pendant in 2015, jewellery making has become a passion. Now my materials include such discontinued leather and fabric swatches, offcuts from a local shoemaker, and even the tiniest scraps from my own jewellery making. Nothing is wasted.

I love creating original, distinctive pieces for you to express your unique fashion style. In addition, every piece is carefully handcrafted with sustainability in mind. Join me on the war on waste, and wear something eco-friendly and truly one of a kind.

Seek originality, choose sustainability - Be the difference!
