Jewellery Designer
Currently based in Queensland, Australia, on the traditional lands and sea of the Gubbi Gubbi and Butchulla people. I pay my respects to the traditional custodians of the land and sea, the ancestors and elders—past, present and future. They are amongst the oldest living cultures in the world. Sovereignty was never ceded. Always was, always will be.
