Biography

I am a Melbourne based jeweller who has completed an Advanced Diploma of Jewellery Technology at NMIT in 2009. I construct tactile pieces that entice the wearer into playful interactions. Drawing inspiration from a childhood filled with origami, science fiction, puzzles and vintage toys, I use both precious metals and contemporary materials to make my creations. I relish technical challenges and treat the act of making as a puzzle in itself, finding the best design solution to produce objects that are entertaining and functional.
