Birdy One and Birdy Two were among the first artworks I created in my, then new, Mullumbimby studio. 

I had only recently become intensely interested in sculptural work - particularly the creation of three dimensional mosaic substrates, and had been working hard in my studio to explore this. The Birdy sculptures grew out of some styrofoam, wooden skewers, and a whimsical afternoon.

They also grew organically, as so many mosaics do, out of the vast array of supplies I had collected and stashed in old crates under my workshelves. A number of years ago I had been fortunate enough to be given several large boxes of shells by an old Coral Sea fisherman. Amongst his collection was a lhuge number of scallop shells. I cut these shells into tiny sharp 'feathers' and long tails and spiky wings, and The Birdys were hatched. Along with the shell, I used glass rod and smalti.

The birds come as a pair. They are delicate, but robust - so will sit comfortably outside, but won't enjoy being handled. 

They stand about 15cms tall, and about 20-25cms in length.


As with all Goosehouse Designs jewellery, this unique jewellery is individually handcrafted by me in my studio. My upcycled, sustainable, broken china jewellery is crafted from ethically-sourced, pre-damaged, vintage china, that would otherwise end up in landfill. It is the perfect romantic gift for wedding anniversaries, birthdays, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day and any time you want to show your love through a treasured piece of artisan jewellery.


Your Goosehouse Designs jewellery will be sent to you carefully wrapped and packaged using recycled and recyclable materials. I am committed, at all times, to operating my business in every way I can to be kinder and gentler to the planet.
