Emma Sadie Thomson, a self-taught jewelry designer introduces us to her latest Shapeshifting SS 12/13 collection where she showcases her designs made using acrylic with a touch of metal. The collection features minimalistic designs and when worn adds a touch of spiffiness to the otherwise boring outfit.


Hi Emma! Tell us a bit about yourself.
I'm Emma Thomson, aged 25, a nature lover, has a degree in Landscape Architecture and is a self-taught jewelry designer.



When did you discover your passion for designing?
I have always loved creating and collecting. Creating something beautiful from found objects is so satisfying. Feeling a little lost after studying and travelling, I returned to my childhood hobbies and began creating jewellery for my friends and family. This soon grew into something more and I'm working hard to develop it further.



Where do you get your ideas and inspirations from?
Nature, travel, friends, environment, life.





What are your favourite materials and equipment to work with?
At the moment I am experimenting with acrylic, it's a really cool material that you can manipulate easily. The next collection will focus on layering different colored acrylic and I would love to experiment with metals.



What do you have to tell from your designs?
My designs are a representation of my personality and style; simple, elegant but with a striking element. I want the pieces to add a touch of something fun and quirky to a normal outfit. My designs are all handmade which is important to me, and as I expand I will be very selective as to where I get my products made. The ethical and sustainable side of fashion are very important to me and I would love to keep everything in Australia, as the manufacturing industry here is diminishing.



Which of your projects are you most proud of? What can we expect in the future?
I'm proud of the Shapeshifting collection as a whole, it has come a long way from the original products I started the label with. I want to move into bags and shoes.



If you could only work with one colour, which one would it be and why?
Black. I live in black.



What would you do if you win a million dollars?
Keep doing what I am doing but relocate to an island where I could work from.
