We'd like to introduce the lovely Kate from Kate Campbell Designs!
Kate is a Melbourne based jeweller with a focus on 'reframing the definition of precious'.
"I love taking everyday things and framing them in silver to redefine them in the viewers eyes, from old copper pipe to wood and the inner workings of watches. At the moment I am working on framing knitting/crochet."
Kate did the NMIT Advanced Diploma in Jewellery in 1999/2000 and in the intervening 12 years practised privately, making jewellery for herself and friends. Recently launched through the 'Make Craft Your Business Course' run by the Thornbury Women's Neighbourhood House, Kate Campbell Designs is her first venture into the retail world with her work.
“I am thoroughly enjoying it, and feel so supported by the women that I met doing the course and keep meeting at markets like Suitcase Rummage. It is a great community and I feel very lucky to be part of it!”
