Q+A
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A FASHION DESIGNER?

I love the creative aspect of designing and making my own jewellery pieces. I love being able to bring my ideas to life - I'm in my happy place when I can sit at my bench and become immersed in what I am doing for hours on end. I love being able to bring my designs to others and it gives me a feeling of satisfaction when other people love my pieces as much as I do.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOU BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

My biggest challenge is creating pieces which are different - jewellery is an expression of the individual. There are so many talented designers and beautiful pieces out there that it sometimes becomes overwhelming when you think too much about it!



WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION?

I get my inspiration from the things I love - feminine shapes, the beauty of simplicity, comfortable furniture, gorgeous objects and bling!

I carry a little notebook around with me so I can jot down ideas and sketches while I'm out and about - also so I don't forget! When I get an idea I become fixated on it for several days - even weeks until I have a basic collection sketched out.

Sketching helps me process my thoughts - must be the years of design training but I can't do anything without sketching it out first!



WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A DESIGNER?

As a young child I was always into arts and crafts and doing creative things.

This love of art evolved into a love of designing and creating objects leading me to study Industrial Design with a focus on Object and Jewellery Design.

During my uni years I became enthralled with the idea I could design objects for the mass market and worked in the retail design industry for many years.

After working on mass produced products for so many years I eventually reverted to the handmade philosophy and started my own jewellery label focussing on the beauty of handmade.

My work is also shaped by my design background I think - my belief that design/art should be accessible - yes it should be stylish and beautiful but it should be able to be accessed by the majority.
