My friend De is one of those creative gals who achieves many of those things we just dream about. This article in Australian House & Garden Magazine (October 2008) featured De along with 2 other craftswomen in an article called "Hearts & Craft".

As well as being a talented Interior Designer with her own practice Dearne Herrengberg Interiors, she has a jewellery range called Mainichi. Oh and she is Mum to 1 year old Andre, which I'm sure she would agree is her greatest achievement.
This is De's philosophy behind the range.
"Mainichi design inverts the concept of precious jewellery. There are no precious metals or jewels in these pieces, instead, unexpected, ordinary and everyday materials become pieces of wearable art."
Here is one of the latest in her shop. Oooooh..... I just love it! Don't worry.... I already have a Mainichi collection of my own :)
