      • - How did you become a jeweller? 


        I was studying Graphic Design at RMIT and was searching for something more hands on and immediate. I discovered the lost wax casting method and I was hooked.



        - How would you describe your jewellery?


        Rough refined.

    • - You have a recognisable style of design, what is the basis of this?


      No matter which material/style I use it is all made by me in the beginning. I think having one hand make all the pieces brings them together as a concise whole.

      • - Your pieces seem to feel organic, each piece is unique in the shape and curves - is this intentional and why?


        Yes, my aim is to subtly subvert traditional jewellery shapes, so the viewer/wearer is reminded of ancient times.


        - How long do you spend at the studio on any given day and how long would it take to complete say one ring?


        I work regular office hours (very unglamorous), and the pieces can take from a few hours to 4 weeks to make.

    • - How do you dress, do you have a uniform?


      The way I dress is like a kid going off to primary school whose parents have allowed them to dress themselves for the first time. I love Adidas, Margiela and Martine Rose.


      - Do you have any studio rituals?


      Music first thing, and lots of coffee.


      - What and who inspires you?


      Painting. particularly Australian indigenous artists. The freedom and use of repetition and paint application are mesmerizing.
