Christine Smalley is a full time designer & educator under the label Etelage est in 2002 and based in the inner west. She is a bower bird at heart and combines her love of travels & cultures to source exotic artisan beads & embellishments for her jewellery designs. She has lived in Africa, studied glass design in Italy & fossicked through many a basement of former jewellery makers in the hub of Bohemia. (Czech Republic and southern Germany) Her travels allow a constant flow of inspiration & stories plus an eclectic & juxtaposed style. She observes that generally as a society we are becoming more mindful about our choices: conscious of choosing products which are made using artisan traditions & not mass produced, and seeking quality over quantity. So it is with that philosophy she shares her skills and knowledge of jewellery design to encourage all her students to awaken their creative soul and seek beauty, slow, artisan and local.
