I think I've successfully internalised most of Julianne Moore's performance into my own emotional repetoire.


I am OK with admitting that I am sustained by prettiness.

Corky Saint Clair got so pretty before the accident that sometimes as I was closing I would pull the doors down and spend ten minutes enjoying it by myself.

Everywhere you looked there was something interesting to look at.

The shop isn't there again yet, but it is getting there slowly.

My First Official Friendship Date with Mcneills - we drank beer, sat outside Moonlight Cinema and got to watch Volver for free, got free icecreams which melted all over our hands 'cos it was so hot.

Later I took this supersweet photo of her.

Went to the Yayoi Kusama exhibition at the MCA. Absolutely mind blowing. Optical illusions, mirrors + lighting reaching to infinity, hippie sex performance art...shiny finishes, fluoro rendering - imagine all the trendy scenester hippie shit in Australia done better with high end production values.

Worth visiting sydney just for this!


I bought this at Made (Kings Street, Newtown). I love the colours and the little bear spoon.

This is where Paul Keating lives in Pots Point. Check out the massive Hummer parked out the front. and the random gay guy who wanted to be in the shot

This is where Russell Crowe lives. It was really beautiful. Notice the two gay guys with their groceries. Pretty much 90% of guys in Sydney are fully gay, it's like the law or something.

I stayed in this derro accommodation in Darlinghurst once. The architecture in Sydney is much more interesting than in Melbourne, as a result of the more dramatic geography and weird city layout. I like the triangular shape of the building.


Stayed in Darlinghurst, round the corner from King's Cross. Baz Luhrman lived next door. Check out his cast iron gates. They were massive, maybe 4m high.

Everyone in Sydney seems to be always seem to be going to the gym or leaving the gym.

It's so beautiful there, I guess you would want to be outside all the time showing as much skin as possible. Which is why Sydney fashion is so retarded. Check out these women I saw in Darlinghurst, which is where the 'scenesters live'

Went to Shopping in Newtown, which is supposed to be like Fitzroy. I did see some lesbians fighting but it wasn't really Fitzroy. Brunswick Street is more affluent, finished and tourist-y.

I liked Made (590 King Street). Found this super cute brooch by Made by White.

Everyone seems to love this new enamelled robot necklace. It has an analogue watch built into it's chest. Tres logical, but hey it's cute.

Available now from Corky Saint Clair.


We got the new range of tiny body organs cast in sterling silver by Julie Parker. It is a beautifully weighted piece on a long silver chain.

Heaps of fun to wear.

I went to see Zabriskie Point at Cinemateque. The film is a self indulgent excercise in 70s psychadelia featuring:

a beautiful cast of untalented actors

an orgy

and an explosion

For me, my main pleasure was the slab of 70's Americana - the typography, the outfits, hairstyles and even the food.

Look at this collection of rings one of my customers was rocking yesterday, that's some commitment to silver...

This is a cute idea but it goes on for 2 minutes too long. It must have taken years to put together. The music is disappointing. I'm going to give this 3 stars

This is a custom job I did for one of my regular customers. I quite enjoy doing custom jobs as sometimes there are time and budget constraints which provides some excitement - you know, its a 'Jewellery Challenge'.

This piece turned out beautifully. Michelle cut it out of 2mm silver to make it extra durable; these little cufflinks will last forever.


These solid silver studs are literally as cute as a button.

I kinda thought if Iwas totally obscene I could sew these silver buttons onto a shirt and have Melbourne's most expensive shirt.

I am also making a button ring that a very nice customer designed.

This is my first scarf. I got them made here in Melbourne. They are being sold at Corky Saint Clair, TNK and Kids in Berlin. It has been selling well.

I have always wanted to use this pattern on something. It took some time to make it repeat but it turned out sweet....

It's fun wearing this as the scales look like little clouds when wrapped around your neck.


here is the new range of corky greeting cards. 10 styles...




My photo
I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands. I don't like people who make me feel tired.
