Why did you become a jeweller?

I’ve always done art! When I returned to Australia after living and travelling through Europe and China I decided to do a course in metal smithing in 2007.  I’ve been developing and exploring jewellery making since. How would you describe your men’s jewellery range at Lord Coconut and what was its inspiration? Ginkoh Jewellery pieces are often one of a kind, created though utilising a variety of metals and techniques. Enjoying different materials, recycling and our Australian culture. How would you describe what is on your jewellery bench? My bench AKA “Precious”, custom made by my Dad, has a continuous movement of unresolved useful and inspiring pieces that I pick up or create along the way, each intern becomes something unique When not making jewellery what do you love to do? Watching movies, going to the beach and Figure drawing. I do love to travel so I’ve always got that in mind. Get tattooed. Favourite restaurant I think a bbq at a mate house is my kind of thing. Favourite movie I could chose many but……Spy Game Favourite travel destination For now Italy Favourite band I like a lot of differnet music though Pearl Jam is always going to stay with me Favourite book Lonely Planet Guide….anywhere.
