This site is a combination of my art and jewellery, as both come  from the same creative place.


Gemstone & Crystal Designs

There is nothing quite as unique and special as handmade jewellery. I have been making wire wrapped lovelies for over a decade and love to share nature's beauty with the world. Opals, gemstones and crystals made into unique pendants using sterling silver or 14k gold filled wire or findings, and every one is different!  Many of the opals I have cut and polished myself, direct from the miners and I have collected gemstones and crystals from around the world. It is a passion, a joy and a wonderfully creative process. I hope you enjoy my work and thank you for looking.

I have returned to my first love of acrylic art as I find it such a calming and healing thing to do. I have been an artist all my life, from silk painting, acrylic, ceramics, or whatever way I could apply colour to something.

Now I am doing 'high flow' acrylic painting, which means a pouring medium is added to keep the colour and yet the paint flow. The results can be remarkable and unpredictable, but always colourful!

Sometimes I see a shape that I outline into an object, or just add embellishments, such as mandalas, with paint pens. I also make 'Art Jewellery' by reusing drips from paintings and putting them in a setting. They become an original, colourful artwork that is one of a kind. It's all fun and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do making them.
