Imagination.... will take you everywhere

I just finished reading this article in the latest Green magazine about an amazing aussie lady, Suzie Stanford.
Suzie has a reputation as an 'avant-garde' designer - creating jewellery collections from items sourced from flea markets and auction houses over the world. She is also creating awesome furniture and pieces from things like vintage tea towels, teaspoons and abandoned tapestries and needleworks. She seems to have a real sense of connecting history and present and the often unappreciated work (and heart) that goes into easily discarded art works (like granny's old cross stitch).
