Athens Greece Etsy Shop

I am an Australian designer, currently based in Athens, Greece. I have a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Visual Arts, majoring in printmaking and with a minor in painting. I have completed a Certificate IV in Jewellery Design and Manufacture.

My themes all start in the natural world, especially the unusual shapes of fungi, succulent plants, seeds and pods, plankton and coral. I have an ongoing infatuation with certain historical botanists.

  • Casting Studio Athens, Greece Some of the items in my shop are made with a process called lost wax casting. I create the models in wax, and have them cast into metal at a local workshop here in Athens.
  • ArtMind Belgium ArtMind.etsy.com Mitsy is a ceramicist working in Belgium. We have collaborated on a number of projects, Mitsy creates the porcelain components of the jewellery in her workshop in Belgium, and I turn these into finished pieces of jewellery.
