Amber has spent over 20 years honing her craft as a jeweller of seed, shells and precious stones. As a long-time local resident and regular local marketeer on the Island, she continues to evolve her work from the natural materials she collects from the Island and around Australia. She is passionate about developing unique designs using a variety of seeds and gemstones. Some of the seeds grow on Straddie and others come with the ocean’s currents and are washed up onto the beach. Amber grew up in north-east Victoria on the Ovens River. She has always had a strong connection to nature and felt completely at home in the Australian bush. She first arrived on Minjerribah/North Stradbroke Island in 2000 whilst on a trip travelling around Australia in her van. She came for a week and ended up staying on and calling the Island her home. Amber is moving on from the gallery from October, and you will be able to find Amber and her beautiful jewellery at the Point Lookout Markets.
