I started melting glass in 2005 after a weekend beginner course. I then taught myself the rest looking at online photos and being able to figure out the techniques. I have since studied under world-renowned glass artists, including Corina Tettinger, Leah Fairbanks, Bernard Stoner, Holly Cooper, Andrea Guarino-Slemmons and Kathryn Wardill. I evolved into being quite particular about flowers and became known for my brightly coloured floral-covered beads, and murrini floral bouquet Cabochons. My glasswork and tutorials have been featured in several worldwide printed beading magazines over the years, as well as being worn on a couple of Television show episodes.In 2014 I started setting my glass into silver worked jewellery, after teaching myself silversmithing watching lots of Youtube videos.
I use Soda Lime glass imported from Italy and the USA for their colour vibrancy. My torch of choice is a dual-fuelled Carlisle Mini CC torch, and I use a computer-controlled kiln for correctly annealed beads.
As a jewellery designer, I only create One of a Kind jewellery pieces using the highest quality fine and sterling silver, ethically sourced high-grade Gemstones, and natural mined Turquoise.
I gladly accept custom orders but mainly work on a "what comes naturally" process which encourages experimentation. Custom work will take approximately one week to finish and requires a 50% deposit. I live and work on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. My studio is just near Caloundra, and it has the beautiful rainforest surrounding it. I am open to the public by appointment. Please message me if you would like to visit!

Gorgeous! Beautiful work and great seller. The twig is so intricate and the gems look like real flower buds. Love it.
Love everything about it from the bold, yet elegant design, to the unbelievable turquoise specimen and the lustre of the faceted labradorites. So special!
