I’m the maker/creator of Little Legends novelty pop culture earrings inspired by film, TV, music, art, literature and iconic products. All my earrings are hand-drawn, oven-baked and made of lightweight shrink plastic. Custom orders are popular and most welcomed.
I’ve always been crafty and making my drawings and interests into wearable art seemed like a cool next step.
I just jumped on YouTube and started researching and experimenting with the best methods to do so and ended up with shrink plastic earrings!
I was drawing and making likenesses of my favourite celebs, characters and icons from pop cultures, so the name “legend” seemed appropriate somewhere.
My art shrinks down on the plastic during the process so “little” was apt, and I love alliteration so the two words together just jumped out at me!
A writer. Still do, to be honest 😉 My all-time fave book series is Harry Potter. I got a comment from my grade 5 teacher in primary school after submitting one of my enthusiastically long ‘short stories’ that said, “Watch out J K Rowling!” I’m still proud of that, lol. My fave genre to write in however is crime/drama.
To keep loving what you do and have faith in your work. As artistic people, we often compare our work to others and other occupations so it can be difficult to stay motivated or see the financial worth of our art (which is ridiculous!). Also, making something we love doing a job can sometimes take the fun out of it. Finding that balance is hard.
Movies, TV, music, theatre, art and good writing inspires me, and the people involved in all those fields inspire me too.
It’s literally a quarter of the family dining room!!
On Instagram and Facebook. I’m also participating in a Melbourne Movie Market at the Astor Theatre on Saturday October 20th for film fans of all genres who want to find a treasure at this special “film only” flea market spectacular.
