My love of adornment started nearly 30 years ago with an amazing trip to East Africa, where my eyes, ears and heart were opened up to the exciting possibilities of personal adornment. Experiencing the stunning African landscape with my own eyes and discovering the beautiful fabrics, beads and carvings of the East African people touched me in a way that has stayed with me over the years.
Since then the direction of my life has been gently steered toward the pursuit of all things beautiful. I am now blessed with the opportunity to make several international trips each year collecting fascinating gemstones, beads, antique buttons, artifacts and adornments from some of the world's most remote locations.
Through my travels many doors of opportunity have opened both personally and business wise, and I have met wonderful individuals of all ages, backgrounds and religions, many touching my life in big and small ways.
My workshop/studio “Harmony House” is situated on our beautiful 50 acre property Hazelwild, set amongst the tranquil Australian bush. This is where I work in peace, harmony and with great inspiration, creating jewellery to nourish and uplift.
My jewellery is a reflection of all I am and have become. It's a pleasure to share the passion of my life’s work with you as you wear your favourite piece by Reneé, each piece designed and assembled for you with love and joy.
