Crafting jewellery for connection
Since I began creating nature inspired pieces in 2013, I’ve always seen jewellery as a source of connection.
Whether it’s a bangle of your favourite native plant, a necklace to reminisce on sun-kissed beaches, or a ring that holds memories of someone you love.
Jewellery has the power to connect us to a place, person, memory, moment or passion.
And that’s why I create perfectly imperfect jewellery inspired by wild places.
It allows each piece to tell a story — one that’s written by the person who wears it.
How I began
Growing up on the shores of the Mornington Peninsula, developing a love for nature was almost inescapable. I would spend my days by the beach — swimming and collecting sea treasures.
In 2012, I graduated from Visual Art at Monash University, majoring in Metals and Jewellery. It was then that I began expressing my love for wild places through handmade, rare and intentional pieces.
Today, I continue to spend my spare time outdoors — hiking, snorkelling and freediving — always searching for new objects and ideas to share with other lovers of the earth and sea.
There is is a roughness yet delicate nature to the pieces reflecting every curve and bump of its natural counter part…
As I sit in the Urban sprawls of Melbourne….I wear the ocean and feel it…..which keeps me grounded and connected to life’s source
