I mine, cut, polish, design and create unique opal and semi precious gemstone creations.
I first came up with my business idea out of pure boredom! I had moved to live in the opal fields with my partner after working 20 years in the finance industry. After 8 months of settling in to a whole new world I needed to get back into life. So I asked my partner to teach me how to cut and polish the opal (he is very patient) and after a few months, I began to make my first "handbag charms". That is when the light bulb moment happened...and I knew I could make my own business out of what I was learning. So I did and the ideas and designs grew from there!
