I'm an Australian, born and bred on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland. I grew up living in a house on the Maroochy River. I'm married to an amazing waterman and I have two ocean loving teenage boys. Our long time love of Hawaii, outrigger and standup paddle board racing led us to moving to Hawaii for 4 years from 2012.
While living in Hawaii I learnt the art of handcrafting jewellery into unique individual pieces. Each piece is inspired by the ocean and beach lifestyle. Most of my pieces are hand shaped, forged, usually soldered, textured and even hammered to create a unique piece of jewellery. My pieces incorporate the use of freshwater pearls, recycled or genuine sea glass, gemstones and vacated sea shells. All of my jewellery components are ethically found and sourced; no sea life is ever harmed. Some pieces that I feel compliment my collection have been outsourced and specifically added to my store to widen the range for you, my valued customer.
Aussie Wahine is a unique coastal collection put together by the sea, my hands and my heart. Thanks for stopping by. Sue…the Aussie Wahine.
