Anna Davern is a contemporary Australian jewellery designer with a love of Australiana, vintage tins and precious metals. Her work often combines humour and playfulness (like with these biscuit tin brooches), organic shapes, subtle materials and textures. You can find her work at Aspects of Kings Park or online here and here. I wouldn’t mind the Maria brooch to add to my crazy-brooch-lady collection.

These fish just make me laugh. Love their names, too – Winkin’ and Blinkin’!
