Original and Sustainable
My art jewellery is perfect for customers who support eco-friendly shopping habits. Pendants, earrings and brooches are made with upholstery samples and leather offcuts sourced from local artisans, including a furniture maker and a shoemaker! I also play with reclaimed beads to design new necklaces. It is important to me that while creating unique jewellery pieces, I can extend the use of resources and be kind to the planet.

Recycled and Local
My greeting cards are made with FSC certified 100% recycled paper made in Australia, and feature the use of textile samples that would normally have gone to the landfill.

I am happy and lucky to be able to create beautiful, functional and sustainable designs for you. Enjoy!

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.

Express your personal style with original and sustainable jewellery 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.
