Is it just me, or does this look like a pair of cufflinks or earrings or lapel pins?

They’re actually Golden Wattle pollen grains. Beautiful. I wonder if all pollen grains are so gorgeous?

I love wattle flowers … they were everywhere in the area I grew up, and were the inspiration of the carving for my Gold Brooches from my second year at uni.

Exhibition invitations

I’m excited.


During one of my sporadic cupboard clearouts I found an invitation to my 1st & 2nd Year exhibition ‘Construct‘, as well as the invitation for my graduate exhibition ‘Out of the Basement‘.

I love organising. I love being organised.

My RMIT jewellery drawers have been consolidated and reorganised. Each piece is now wrapped in acid-free paper and in a little zip-lock bag with a photo of the piece for easy identification – nothing worse than having to unwrap everything to find the one piece you’re looking for.

Organisation nerd.

As part of this exercise, I’ve decided which pieces are candidates for recycling and reworking – I’ll write more about that another time.
