Swimming in Stones is an Australian jewellery label, with every piece being designed in Sydney. It has been my goal to collaborate with the world's artisans to create meaningful work for them and to connect people to the craftsmanship, stories and beauty of this magnificent handiwork, creativity and wearable art.
Watching our Australian team at the Tokyo Olympics from lockdown in Sydney this past week has given me time to think, reflect and feel grateful for this beautiful lifestyle we live. The opportunities to follow your dreams, making things happen. For me that is proudly making this jewellery.
The following famous passage has lived with me since being 7 years of age, it fills me with pride, nostalgia and leaves me with such beautiful visual stimulation.
"I love a sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains,
Of rugged mountain ranges, of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons, I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror - the wide brown land for me!"
Our Country, Dorothea MacKellar
Hear, Hear Ms Dorothea MacKellar!
