Next Romance Jewels Pre-Summer 2014/15 Collection

Living and loving life in the wonderfully creative city of Melbourne, Australia, with my hubby, our two young boys and a bucket load (room full) of craft supplies. Ah... great loves in life ;)
A past life as a graphic designer, photographer and silversmith. Gradually setting up workshop space (taking over the house) keeping busy and happy.

These illustrative art pieces will be part of my summer 2015 range. Great for layering with other pieces.

The inspiration came from an invitation to be part of a South American laneway festival in Melbourne. The idea is dreamcatchers and desert & sea colours, incorporating gold coins and natural (turquoise, howlite, lapis, carnelian) stones.
