When I first started working for The Irish Star I didn’t think that would be the case.
In fact, it was pretty strange.
After all, there was no one I knew who had worked in Australia and I didn, either.
It wasn’t until I was told by a friend of a friend in Australia that I was in the same boat that I thought that I would work here.
The experience was so different, yet it was also a good fit.
It was in Melbourne where I first met Australian designer and jewelry designer Anna Harker.
I got to work with her a few times and have become a huge fan.
I had always wanted to work in Australia but it was always a bit of a shock.
I always assumed I would be a bit more relaxed here and more of a tourist rather than working in the fashion industry.
It’s a different world.
I’m not sure why.
I’ve always loved working in Australia, I just haven’t always felt like I could fit in here.
That was probably my biggest disappointment when I first arrived here, but I’ve been here almost two years now.
Anna and I are lucky that we work in such a different fashion world to the ones in New Zealand.
Anna Halker is a designer who is known for her quirky, fun designs.
She also happens to be a huge jewellery lover, and I have to admit I can see why.
There’s just something about being in Australia where you get to meet new people and people you never knew before.
I think the experience here is something I’m always looking forward to, especially in my day job.
I don’t know what else to say.
I have no idea how the design industry will look like here in two years time.
It just feels so new and different to where I grew up.
It may sound like a cliché but it’s definitely the case that it’s an exciting time for the industry in Australia.
It has a lot to offer in terms of creativity and design, and the opportunity to work on some really cool jewellery designs.
It feels like we are on the cusp of a new age of jewellery design.
There is definitely a lot of opportunity here to be creative and it’s been really fun to see how things are changing.
Anna’s work has always been in an artistic space and she’s one of my favourites designers, so when I saw her designs I knew I wanted to be part of it.
It seems like a new breed of designers are being inspired and working in a new direction.
Anna has a fantastic range of designs and you can see the trends she’s going for are not limited to just jewellery, she has also been making accessories.
I know that there are lots of designers out there that would love to have a hand in some of these accessories, but it feels like jewellery has always had the upper hand here.
Anna is working on something new, and we’ve been looking forward a lot with her designs.
This is the new trend, a design that is simple and yet sophisticated.
It is also a style that is going to go on to be more popular.
Anna brings the ‘new wave’ style to the industry and is making jewellery that is unique and wearable, which makes me happy.
Anna also has an impressive collection of jewellers, and her collections are not only unique, but also very affordable.
If you are looking for a unique, functional jewellery collection, look no further.
