Disappearing Act - Wearable Art

I consider my jewellery to be miniature sculptures, artworks inspired by the beauty and wonders of the Australian rainforest; its flora and its fauna and the delicate balance between each living thing.  Most of my jewellery is designed to move and interact with their wearer and be a work of art when it is not being worn.

“Disappearing Act” is a strangler fig tree wearable art piece made from recycled plastic bags and bottles, featuring endangered species.
