Little Yellow Robin
For years I worked in the fast paced, black and white world of corporate engineering. Time was tight, there was always somewhere to be and some thing to do.
Then I had a little family, fast! Three beautiful babies in under two years and I was run off my feet. Focused completely on the next task. I’m sure you can guess what happened; next my body and my soul were craving a slow down.
I was lucky enough to be blessed with a home nestled amongst the Australian bush, surrounded with Eucalypts and birdlife abundant. Finally, I took a breath and noticed what was around me.
I started to notice the lime green of the tree trunks changing in the gentle rain, the browns and greens of the canopy set against the silvery evening sky and the tiny bursts of colour that come with the seasonal blooms.
Each time I sat still and took time to see a little Eastern Yellow Robin was present; busy but completely in the moment.
I was inspired to create. I wanted to do two things; make pieces that one could carry into our busy world as a reminder of the beautiful things that surround us and, secondly, make people smile.
Each of my pieces is handcrafted with love. A gift from my heart to you.
How long have you been making your jewellery?
I’ve been playing with jewellery for several years now, making as gifts for family and friends.
How did you get started?
My mother and my gran taught me to crochet as a little girl. This is where my creative journey began. I love to incorporate crochet as often as possible into my pieces.
What is your greatest inspiration?
Nature and all that surrounds me. If we take the time to slow down and notice the world around us all else falls into perspective.
What is the greatest challenge to owning and operating your own business?
Confidence. Making is very personal for me. Each and every piece has meaning. To let them go is always like sending a gift. You hope with all your soul it will be received with the love intended.
What is the best thing about owning your own creative business?
Being able to share. I am grateful for all that I have and Little Yellow Robin allows me to share my blessings with others.
