When I was a little girl, I'd spend hours on my own at the beach, where we lived in Tasmania there were large cliffs with crashing waves and rocky beaches in between. I was always searching for something, treasure I guess. I was never lucky enough to find any pirates loot or pearls however I never gave up searching. During my time as a jeweller I have had the honor of working with countless treasures, gold, diamonds and pearls. Really it was a dream job for me. But I found that I was working too much, unable to say no I took on so many jobs, to the point where 16 hour days weren't enough. At this point I made a decision to change my life. I am still in love with creating and always will be and I hope I still get to make the occasional treasure for someone from time to time. But going on this adventure is a dream come true for me in so many ways. The ocean sooths my soul, the endless hours of sailing perfect for all the crafting I want to do, the adventures, good for my mind and body. The sunshine warming me. Our home, on the ocean, floating here there and everywhere.

Design is simply infinite possibility waiting to happen, what it waits on is human imagination to crystallise its possibility.
