A little bit of history and background along with where Gutsy Girl is headed: I've been going to The Goldsmiths' School here in Brisbane since the beginning of last year. I've enjoyed many jewellery courses on and off since the mid 1990's! After going back and forth between handcrafted hobbies, I created Gutsy Girl to fuel and ignite my creative passions, to live out a long held dream to share what I create with others and to provide some positive and empowering messages on living a Gutsy Life. I was surprised to discover after 3 years of living in Brisbane that there was a jewellery school of my dreams near where I live! I signed up straight away.
The last year has been incredible and I have learned so much from Sue, Elmar, Andrea and Bill. Of every jewellery class I have ever attended, these teachers are the BEST. If you are in Brisbane, I encourage you to take a look at the School.
When I began Gutsy Girl I wanted to focus on handmade. Whilst I currently create and sell jewellery made with gemstones and silver, it is my intention to hone in and make jewellery completely by hand, that is, making the clasps, bails, ear hooks, chains from scratch without premade findings. Currently I combine premade with handmade. Unfortunately I have time constraints as I juggle full time employment so this will be a gradual (but fun and exciting) process. I would drop everything in a heartbeat and work at the bench full time if that was possible!
What does this all mean? Gutsy Girl and my Superpowers gemstone collection will continue. I adore creating with and collecting crystal gemstones and the powerful healing they provide. I am starting a new label which will showcase my handcrafted creations. It's already in the works! Here's a sneak peek of what is currently on my bench!
