I’d like to tell you a bit about myself. I’m about average height, I wear glasses, I like to skim stones and take long walks in the park. The area of the arts in which I am trained and identify with is that of Contemporary Jewellery. I also like to drink beer and cider, so if you are ever in the area and feel the need to talk Jewellery (or the state of the Australian cricket team), drop me a line and we can converse well into the night about this, that and anything else you have on you mind.
365 Brooches - Inspired by some crafty people, I have decided to create my own '365 project', essentially making a brooch a day for one year. This project will be used as a means of exploring ideas, processes and found materials that I have collected, nay hoarded over the years. I see these 'brooches' as quick 'sketches' of ideas rather than actual finished pieces, and as such they may only take a few minutes to make, but allow for the ideas in my head to become some form of a reality. They may not be pretty, they may not be practical and they may be something else entirely but they are a start, and what better place to begin than that.
