About

Creative Chaos

My world has always involved design in some form. My father is an architect so I grew up in a house over flowing with contemporary design books and magazines, flooring and wall covering samples, modern furniture and minimal spaces. My mother made many of our clothes and created fabulous costumes for the plays I was always in so there were always buttons, cottons, wool and fabric samples lying around.

As a family we were often immersed in handmade projects for the house - curtains made from paper beads that we created from the gloriously colourful pages in glossy architectural magazines, covering walls with wonderfully textural textiles, sorting volcanic stones for landscaping in our unusual garden...

My adolescence was spent rehearsing and acting, painting murals on walls, working with polymer clay (eons before it was cool) dipping wire in bright (possibly toxic) substances to make mobiles and...well simply creating.

After several deviations in theatre I ended up studying design and now many, many years later have finally found my true passion in the world of jewellery and accessory design. Frank Ideas is not a job it's my life and something I would happily do 24 hours a day if there wasn't a need to eat and sleep and I wasn't surrounded by an amazing family who also require the odd hour or two of attention.

The days are always too short, the ideas too many and materials crying out to be worked with. My studio is filled to the brim with an eclectic range of materials: rubber, wool, beads, buttons, wall papers, textiles, ribbons, leather, plastic and PVC along with found objects that I constantly collect simply because I adore their colours or textures or see "possibilities" in them.
