Griffith Workshops 2018

Gosh it seems so long ago now and I’m only just getting around to doing the blogpost for the Griffith workshops 2018. I must thank the Griffith Regional Art Gallery, in particular Raina Savage for organising and co-ordinating these workshops.  Also a huge thanks to Anthea for doing so much and for driving me around. …

Shaman Inspired Necklace

I’ve always loved Shaman type necklaces or jewelry.  Anything grungy, earthy, ethnic, tribal….these are all words that sing to me when I think of jewelry.  I love this style, probably more so than any other but seldom create anything using this theme – well kind of, but very understated.  I’ve always wanted to create something…

Driftwood and Sea Urchin Spine Statement Necklace

Hi everyone, I love to collect stuff.  I love to collect all sorts of bits and pieces.  I have boxes and bags and crates full of it – all labelled by the way, so I know where it goes!!  I’ve been given lots of treasures over the years and you know, I remember every piece…

Crab Claws and Totems with Polymer Clay

I’ve been crazily creating all sorts of totems and crab claw oddities over the last few months and thought I would share a few of them with you. I entered a piece into an art prize in Brisbane, Queensland recently and was lucky enough to have my piece chosen to be included in the exhibition…

Polymer Clay Crab Claw Necklace

Crab claws certainly send my heart racing.  Check out some of the recent ones my eldest son brought home for me.  Incorporating them into unique, art jewellery pieces is quite a passion of mine and I’ve got quite a collection of them now.  These two pieces came about as part of an online art exhibition…
