Heavily inspired by the likes of Peter Tully and passionate about collaborative creation, Bianca seeks to activate vivid memories from deep in the minds of those who adorn themselves with her wears. The goals of her pieces intend to reconnect people to lost feelings of youthful carelessness and freedom in order to create an optimistic interaction between the wearer and viewer.

She has recently accepted a studio space at Metro Arts so expect her presence to continue to grow within the community. Her pieces will be stocked at the Artisan Gallery in Fortitude Valley and has plans in motion to create a window installation there later in the year.
Bianca isn’t shy and is passionate about growing her creative tribe both locally and nationally, so don’t be scared to get in touch. Trust me, her personality is as bright and friendly as the jewellery she creates.
