Been to the Easton Pearson exhibition at GOMA recently, and was blown away by the amazing collection of works by the two local designers. Danny could not resist bringing his spanking new camera along, together with wide angle and macro lenses – but it ended up with me as the trigger-happy snapper. We were thankfully allowed to take pictures of the beautiful dresses, and I’ve attached some detailed shots of the intricate handiwork.

Sneak preview of latest pieces for the Artisan Cherish Exhibition 2009!
I have been out of the scene for a while busy with life and the like… In the course of the past few seasons, I have tried very hard to update my smithing skills and refining design concepts. Attached are the fruits of labour – happily right on time for the spring season in beautiful Brisbane.
Noir Necklace is made up of two layers of intense saw-piercing work, the top piece can be rotated to delight the wearer. It can be worn as a long necklace or hung around one’s neck twice. I have also been experimenting with oxidising silver. Having been told before that everyone preferred their silver shiny, I am determined to refute this…! The Noir necklace is a sedate piece which is very much for those who love the precious yet understated aesthetics.

This is the silver version of the Noir necklace. The polished silver makes it a little more resplendent, and certainly dresses up an outfit.
I will continually be updating as more pieces emerge hot off the bench! Try to keep up! 😉
