About

My hands are little tattooed, nail-polished machines that stitch my imagination into existence.

Hi, I'm Gem! I was born & raised in a little country town called Maffra. I spent my childhood roaming free in paddocks full of cows, swimming in rivers with horses and sleeping in soft piles of dogs & cats & mice. We even had a pet donkey. This is where my strong bond with the animal kingdom was first evoked. I have always been influenced by my visual surroundings, and ever since I was tiny & barely even a human yet, I have been creating art. I started out drawing, painting, & making silly little books for my parents & siblings. Later on, I discovered the joy of sculpting; giving physical shape to my imagination. I loved creating work that transcended a flat surface, making things that were tactile & made to be touched and handled. I was well on the way to uncovering my second passion.

From age 14 – 21, with my invisible bear-ears intact, I danced back and forth between the country and the city (finally settling in Melbourne in 2007) I manoeuvred my way through many artistic adventures, including my Bachelor of Visual Arts. I stopped eating animals. I gathered together a special collection of creative people and places and somewhere in the midst of it all, I realized my deep love of jewellery design. I’ve always been a little bit “different” when it comes to fashion and so I wanted to break out of the mold of traditional jewellery design. I needed to bring my two passions together – animals & jewellery – and create truly unique pieces to be worn by like-minded ladies. I began to live and breathe jewellery… seriously, I would exhale and a colourful burst of gems would fill the air… It was time to gather my tribe (surely i could lure them with my jewel encrusted breath!?)

In 2012, I launched “Triangle of Bears” – the name is meant to incite wonder and have people dreaming of secret animal rituals - my line of cruelty-free & vegan jewellery, made from at least 60% recycled materials. Bears are my spirit animal and I involve a lot of Bear designs in my work. My pieces are colourful, textured, big and bold. Obviously, animals are a huge inspiration & the thing I care about most in the world. I want the power within these animals & other creatures that have crept out of my imagination to give young women the confidence to express themselves and stand out. These are women who want to engage with the people around them and be envied for their fierce style. This is what my tribe is about. Let me be your Mumma Bear…

    Animals have inspired me to run this Happy Little Jewellery Empire of mine. I live in Melbourne and I raise rats as my children, which are pretty much miniature bears, right!?
