THIS EDITION WE BRING YOU some truly inspiring projects, beads and techniques. Our profile features jewellery artist Patricia Olazo, whose designs are eclectic and contemporary. After moving to Australia from Peru, creativity quickly became an essential part of Patricia’s life and jewellery making was her new passion. Patricia loves experimenting with different textures, colours and materials for her jewellery designs and delights in the many types of beads available for her to use. “Beads can be made from rocks, paper, wood, clay, glass, metal, plastic, resin…the list goes on and on. So I guess with all these endless possibilities I’m sure I will never get bored and that the inspiration to create will always be a part of my daily life” And if you are looking for some snap, crackle and pop…

‘GOJJELL’ is Maltese for Jewel. I am of Maltese origin and I believe my place of birth is ‘Gozo’ - a special ‘jewel’ in the heart of the Mediterranean. Gozo is Malta’s sister island, and although a tiny speck in the beautiful Mediterranean sea, it is blessed with so much natural beauty and uniqueness. I thoroughly love working with beads! My creations are inspired by the beads I source from all over the world. All my pieces are one-off designs because I believe originality is important and each piece should be as ‘special’ to its wearer as it is to it’s creator! Have a browse through my store or blog and see if you can find that special ‘jewel’ which you want to make your own. See more of Maryann’s work…
