Back to the old drawing board


It's a new year, and that means lots of new projects to design. Dreaming happy daydreams about brightly coloured stones and knuckle-duster rings. Yum.

I seem to be doing more and more 'remakes'- melting down, salvaging, re-inventing. It's such a lovely process. Okay, I always have a sick feeling in my stomach when I melt down the old unwanted jewels (what if they change their mind?!) but it's more than balanced by the satisfaction of creating new from old. Phoenix rising from the ashes and all that.

Re-invention is an ongoing theme in Queensland, what with floods and cyclones and such. What resilience we are seeing. I'm so proud of my adopted home state.
