Welcome to my blog.
Lets get to know each other!
As a beaded jewellery artisan who loves colour and light, most of my posts will be on the Metaphysical Properties of Gemstones, Crystals, Minerals and Colour.
Some of my posts will be beading related such as Events or Awards. I will also put up some beading instructions and great sites to visit. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear from you.
Very occasionally I may write of a Community matter that I feel strongly about.... I promise not to bombard you with this sort of post though as I know we all have our different "pet projects".
I have studied the Aura Soma system of Colour Therapy to the Advanced Level. The natural benefits of vibrations from colour, crystals, minerals & gemstones intrigues me. I am always trying to find out more information.
Do you share this interest. I would love to hear from you. How do you use it in your everyday life?
Beaded Jewellery is another obsession. Being able to design and create beautiful Jewellery with the colours and stones I love is amazing.
Seeing other people enjoying and wearing my designs is an exciting.
I have been honoured to win awards for my bead-work and enjoy the excitement of the challenge. Using materials or techniques that I wouldn't generally incorporate in my designs is stimulating.
Bespoke and commissioned work, repairs and remodelling of customers existing pieces and classes are other services I offer. Contact me to arrange an appointment.
You can view (and hopefully purchase) my designs at several Markets around Perth, Western Australia.
Get free postage within Australia when you purchase online. International orders over $200au also receive free postage.
Due to my attention to detail, adding extras like crimp covers and wire guardians, all my original designs come with a 12 month guarantee.
Our environment is also a passion. Occasionally I might get on my "soap box" on a current issue. One of these is the Beeliar Wetlands, which is under threat from a destructive road.
Fracking is another. As is the protection of our Reefs and the Great Australian Bight region.....but wait there is more!!
Our house is set up as energy saving as we are able. The garden follows a general permaculture / no dig practice. The chooks have yet to read the "no dig" agreement though!
Family, Friends & Community
Friends, family and community are important to me. My favourite way to spend an evening is with family and friends. Throw in a bottle of wine and some cheese and I am over the moon. Also Bundy and chocolate wont be scoffed at.
I donate Gift Vouchers, Jewellery items and Class Certificates to Community Groups to assist with their fund-raising. I also donate time and materials at the Connecting Art & Community events where I teach visitors to make their own beaded sun-catchers.
What is your passion?
Do you have a favourite hobby? Is there a cause you are ardent over?
I would love to know what things you enjoy. What makes you tick?
