Meet the Designer-Artist

Where do you live?
Eaton, Western Australia

What inspires you as a designer-artist?
I guess the materials I am working with. I use mostly crystals and freshwater pearls and like to show them off.

What medium do you work with mostly?
Crystal, wire, and pearls.

Why did you become enchanted with this style of jewelry-making?
Because like me it's chaotic, a little bit messy and can take on any shape my mood takes me.

Where and How do you sell your jewelry?
I have a business BOWtique and sell at markets, expos, shopping centers and a bridal shop. I also sell online and custom order.

What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story?
Fire and Ice

What inspired this design?
I had the open heart crystals, bought simply because they were so stunning and then worked on the design from there.

How did it come together?
Definitely defines itself along the way. Not many of my pieces are even planned.
