About Me

When I was a very young child, my Mother and Aunt used to give me their broken or unwanted jewellery to play with. Little did they know it at the time, but their influence created a life long passion for the interplay of colour, texture and design.

I started collecting beads when I was a pre-teen. Never the demure type, I liked big, bold, textured and colourful beads and of course the sixties created a veritable circus of sensory madness that I took full advantage of. Mostly self taught, I experimented with beads of all kinds, found objects, flea market finds, and to mimic beads that I saw in magazines, mostly from other cultures, I learned to make my own from clay, wood and paper and paint! I have studied other bead artists and their techniques and as a life long learner, my jewellery creations are always evolving. I have also had the privilege of travelling the world and with each trip, I was drawn to the beads and ornamentation that expressed the culture of the people with whom we came into contact. I love to celebrate diversity in the jewellery I make and to touch the lives of the people who enjoy wearing it.

After a lifetime of working in Social Services, with jewellery making as my meditation, I am in the process of expanding what was a small, on the side business that mostly marketed to my circles of friends and colleagues, to an online shop that will reach out to a broader international market.
