GLASSBLOWING ASSISTANT AND JEWELLER
Describe yourself in a single sentence?
A charasmatic individual that loves to spread joy and laughter, a dreamer.
What do you do when nobody looks?
I take a breath and center myself.
Why do you create?
I create out of need. To create something with my own hands that someone will love and cherish. Jewellery in particular is what I find a very moving accessory. A lot of people attach sentimental value to their pieces, they wear them to a special event, to remember someone or a period of their life. It's a reminder that they carry with them. These are the reasons that what I do brings me so much joy.
What are you working on right now?
Currently and most importantly I'm working on the growth of my own skills and knowledge. I feel like the only way to proceed is to try to perfect what I currently know and work towards something that will push me out of my comfort zone. This includes my Glassblowing training and my chain making, I want to work with other creatives, to inspire and be inspired.
What keeps you up at night?
Mass production of material items. I feel incredibly strongly towards supporting small business and creatives who I know work extremely hard. We are surviving in a world where everyone desires instant gratification, but majority of people who have the means to support local or small don't and I want to find ways to change the thinking around it.
What do you dream/day dream about?
I daydream about the next adventure, the next new chapter, the wonderful individuals that I have curated in my life and the individuals that I'm yet to meet, to be inspired by and to learn from.
When/where do you come alive?
I come alive in good company, people who can make me smile, make me dance, inspire me, challenge me and most importantly with people who I can do the same back to.
