Joane creates these beautiful pieces at Tarzali, a small village in a picturesque valley on the Atherton Tablelands.
She and her husband have been operating Tarzali Pewtermill for many years in Australia, having learned her craft in Scotland, working with her brother-in-law who is an award-winning jeweller and silversmith.
Her Scottish background comes to the fore with a collection of Celtic and ArtNouveau jewellery.
Her other jewellery and picture frames take inspiration from our own Australian flora and fauna. She also commissioned Aboriginal artist, Clive “Bidga” Atkinson of the Yorta Yorta community in Victoria to produce a range of indigenous designs. These are based on the traditional x-ray art of his region.
Joane enjoys her unique craft and is proud to say that all of her products are 100% Australian. The pewter she uses is exclusively blended to her own specifications by a Brisbane foundry and is entirely lead-free.
