About

Leather Accessories & Dreamcatchers

I made my first piece of jewellery when I was 10 years old, selling friendship bands at my school fete. As I got older I developed a fascination with other cultures and wanted to be an archaeologist. I loved myths and stories of strong female characters such as Boudica, Hatshepsut, Athena and even Xena. The warrior princess was the ultimate heroine – strong and beautiful, independent and compassionate.

My label SPIRITFIRE is strongly influenced by this image of female empowerment. When women wear my accessories, I want them to feel confident and beautiful and courageous. I want them to embrace the feminine and be proud of who they are.

I also draw on my experiences of travel and the natural landscape. Working as a tour guide in the Great Barrier reef and learning to make jewellery from rainforest plants with an indigenous tribe in Ecuador left a deep impression on me. However, it wasn't until I began running eco art workshops for Reverse Garbage Queensland, an NGO that diverts materials from landfill through creative re-use, that I began to experiment with leather. These experiences fuelled my conviction to leave a softer footprint on the environment and incorporate sustainability more fully into my life and my business.

All my products are lovingly made in Australia, and I incorporate both kangaroo and repurposed leather offcuts into my designs. Leathercraft itself is an ancient practice that tells us much about the art and culture of its people. My desire to be an archaeologist has come full circle, as I create new art-ifacts every day in my studio.
