Bio- Just a Little Info about Me
"An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision". (James Abbott McNeill Whistler)
I love creating pieces of wearable art, jewellery that makes your heart skip when it sees you & you see it. My other passions are crystals & opals; these are a natural, but delicate gift from our amazing earth, I have a never-ending collection at home & this has now merged into my online shop & market stalls.
Then there is that gorgeous piece of Vintage Estate Jewellery, that unique one-of-a-kind find that you’ve always wished for in your own personal collection. Three very different yet complimenting aspects of jewellery, some handmade with faceted gems others from raw materials & mixed metals & then there is the lapidary side of my passion, which has just expanded. Can't wait to show you the sparkly gems that I will be producing soon. Toni
I have always had a passion for Jewellery especially one-of-a-kind pieces and unique designs. I sometimes think it is genetic lol as my mother loved her jewellery and we would often spend hours looking through her collection and discussing the stones and metals used and my late sister Maria Froia-Crump was a ceramic artist in her own right.
Though I have been a Secondary school teacher for 30+ years my passion for jewellery never waned. Moving to the Sunshine Coast in 2019 provided me with the opportunity to explore my love for jewellery further. I completed a silver-smith course and dabbled in lapidary and have slowly set up my studio to develop my passions further.
Our online Store is now live:
We post regularly on Instagram as new pieces are finished.
Our up-cycled vintage flatware jewellery is now available at the Stevens Street Gallery 2 Stevens street Yandina and locally at Pomona Rockin Relics.
Attending Pomona Country Market every Saturday is a joy, I love meeting new people with similar interests and seeing the glee on their faces when they find that unique piece they have a connection with. We now also attend Kin Kin Market the first Sunday of every Month.
