tell us about your background: Before starting my handmade jewellery business I was a primary school teacher. I have three beautiful girls all under 4 so life is very busy! I began Forget Me Knot Designs in 2015. I have always loved wearing unique pieces of jewellery. This inspired me to create my own range and experiment with different mediums including resin, polymer clay, silicone beads and fabric buttons.

Wendy Jorre de St Jorre 2

tell us about your background:
I have always enjoyed creating things, so in the 80s I completed diploma of fine arts, specialising in porcelain. However, life got in the way and I had very little time to pursue my art until recently. I started messing around with polymer clay around 3 years ago and became a little obsessed. I am predominantly self-taught, although initially I learnt much from watching tutorials from other artists.

tell us about what you create

Rod and Jane love to fossick around charity shops, boot sales, anywhere and everywhere, purely for the joy of finding lost treasures! They simply could not resist rescuing orphaned china left to sit sadly on dusty shelves. Little piles of fine china saucers started to form teetering towers……what were they to do?

Was it possible they could be adored again?

Twiceloved China was born.

What I do with my Mondays and Tuesdays when I’m not at the gallery.

Geelong is now 5 months young and having spent 6 days a week at the gallery, my fingers were screaming to do more creative work. I now have Sherree my retail assistant manning the gallery on Mondays and Tuesdays so that I can fully utilise the time to be more creative.

I decided to start sewing again and have had my sewing machine in storage for more than 10 years.

skadi jewellery design
tell us about what you create

My jewellery is about achieving beauty through detail and the relationship of a piece to the body. I like to create pieces that are if not a part of the body then an extension of it, complementing the body’s lines and forms while also being comfortable and long wearing. At the same time I design my pieces to stand out (or what’s the point of wearing jewellery in the first place!).

Ish Jewellery

tell us about your background

My creative background actually lies in performance. I had never imagined myself as a visual artist or crafter. Then some years ago a medical issue prevented me from being able to perform. I was desperately missing having a creative outlet. Then a couple of years ago a friend suggested I try beading. I decided to buy myself a “how to” book to get started, and when I saw what was possible using wire and beads I quickly became addicted,

Cath Macauley
How do  you find your inspiration?

I have always done some sort of art and craft: particularly sewing, spinning and weaving. However, I took a ceramics elective at Seven Hills College and found that I loved ceramic sculpture. Then with my young children, I was unable to manage the clay drying process and so I started working on smaller pieces at the kitchen table. Those pieces then turned into jewellery pieces, for which I won an award at the Shorncliffe Potters “Expressions”

boulder opals jewellery

What got you involved in opals?

John grew up with opal; his father was involved in Lightning Ridge through the 60’s & 70’s. The family still has a mining claim and camp at Grawin, Lightning Ridge. We traveled around the various opal fields of Australia and dabbled in our holidays.

We were always saying “one day we will go opal mining”.

What’s your history?

I’m a Kiwi but Australia has been my home for a while now. I left New Zealand 15 years ago after graduating as a Graphic Designer and made my way to London where I started my career as a Designer. After seven seemingly endless cold dark winters I was longing for some light, colour and sunshine and it was time to return to home to the Northern Hemisphere.

How did you get where you are now?

kimono reincarnate japanese jewellery
Where does the name come from?

The name Kimono Reincarnate actually came a while before the business. I had started collecting vintage kimono and obi textiles
with the intent of making bags and jewellery from them, but was still too scared to cut into these gorgeous fabrics. I was thinking about how I wanted to give a new life to these fabrics, and the name Kimono Reincarnate was born. I registered the name first,

whizzbangle bangles
Tell me what inspired you into making bangles?

I have never liked to wear a watch, but I really like to wear bangles on my left arm. I think I like the way they respond with your activity, dancing wildly with big hand gestures, resting while you work at the computer, the odd ‘clank’ to remind you they are there.

How easy or hard is the process?

The process of making things in resin isn’t hard,
