Vicki Knudson Jewellery Artist/Artisan
My interest in creating costume jewellery pieces was quite accidental. A friend had a stall at a fundraising market fete and I just loved the piece she had donated as a raffle.
I asked her if she ran classes and joined in to learn how to create my own designs. That began a ten-year love (still going) of the craft.
One of my favourite projects is to redesign and create favourite or sentimental pieces from family jewellery which have broken or worn out.
I chose to use only natural stones – agate, crystal, quartz, glass, shell and wooden beads.
Anna Donale comes from my own middle name and a derivative of my maiden name.
I hope others who choose my pieces also feel special when wearing them.
