My Gatton Star Centric Magazine Article!!!!

Back in August 2013, I was lucky enough to be approached by reporter Amy Lyne from the Gatton Star Newspaper and was asked to have an article written about Meekz for their upcoming Centric Magazine in December.  With much delight I accepted and so here is the article for you all to read.

A little Thanks from Meekz!!!!

I want to  personally congratulate and thank everyone who has supported Meekz Contemporary Jewellery during the past year.  We finally made it across the 300 Like's mark back on January 23rd and couldn't have gotten here without the support network of friends, family and everyone out there sharing us with the world.  I feel so privileged to be apart of this great little community and cherish all the advice, knowledge and little stories that we impart to one another.

 I want to thank everyone who has taken home a little Meekz for themselves and hope you all enjoy them greatly.  To those of you who embarked on a journey with me to create something new and exciting.  To cross into the creative abyss and venture out the other side with a new appreciation and love for designing and turning something mundane and boring into something truly creative and memorable, I thank you.  You give me the strength to stand, the motivation to continue and the inspiration and hope that art will live on.  You remind me everyday why I do what it is I do and enable me to believe in myself.  

I want to thank several ladies and gentlemen in particular for their support during the last few months, you have kept me going, shown me that Meekz has a future and given me the optimism for future explorations.

 To Jackie Keeble, Cindy Grech, Penny Lonie, Kylie Gimm, Diana Raczek, Kevin Timm, Kaitlin and Jessica Graham, Johanna Guerin and Mimi Shaw, I thank you very much and appreciate your confidence in me as an artist and for giving me the privilege and honour of designing and creating your visions.

Raw Showcase 2013

My raw showcase was spectacular.  I was blown away by everyone's comments.  From the wooden display cases, the moss and the various ranges that I had on display - the feedback was tremendous!  I couldn't have been more proud to be an artist and to represent my work to such a great audience and in such a magnificent environment.  I want to thank everyone who bought a ticket or sponsored me on the night, I wouldn't have been able to attend without your help so thanks.  A big thanks also goes out to the RAW team - Kristen, Tash, Jess, Glen, Emily and to everyone else behind the scenes, you made my RAW experience excellent and one to remember! 

Here's some photos from the night! Enjoy!

Cleveland Institute of Art: Master Series - John Paul Miller

I just came across this inspiration artist John Paul Miller.  Take a look and be as inspired as I was at how talented this man is and how gorgeous his jewellery is.  Enjoy

Raw Showcase Displays

Hey everyone thought I'd include some pics of us creating the wooden displays for my showcase.  We managed to get all the wood from a local business here in Gatton and have de-nailed, de-stapled and sanded back all the wood to bring them back to fairly new.  These wood frames are set to be the back drop of my stall display to create a natural, rustic and recycled look.  Thanks to the hard work of my mum, dad, sister and her bf they have turned out better than we imagined.
