Inspired not by fashion, but by symbolism, rock and roll, the occult, mortality, history and culture.
'I am intrigued by the history symbolism that can be found in Jewellery, and the power and meaning that a piece of Jewellery can hold for its wearer, as a Talisman or Amulet- Protection from Evil; good luck; family & friendship; beliefs; truths; secrets romance; mourning and remembrance; strength, even magical and healing properties.
Many of the pieces in this collection are based on Myths and Legends, Superstitions and Beliefs.
I spent many years working within the Jewellery industry by day, and playing drums in a rock'nroll band by night, and eventually decided to start my very own Jewellery label, with a focus on producing bad ass yet tasteful high quality jewellery.
The kind I wanted to wear but couldn't easily find in Australia.
I spend my days in my Newtown studio where I create pieces using the "lost wax carving technique"- a slow and incredibly therapeutic method of jewellery making!I hand finish all these pieces in house too.
I also hand engrave using traditional methods- I am totally in love with this dying art form.
