Hi, I am Sabine, a German designer who loves the arts, nature, live music and the ocean. I am currently living and working in Brisbane. When I came to Australia a few years ago I fell in love with the wonderful, tropical lifestyle. There's more freedom here to follow my passion than in Europe. Though sometimes I go back for a few weeks to catch up with friends and family and get some fresh inspiration. Since I have launched 'ciclo' in 2016 it has come a long way and I am excited to see where it will take me.
My jewellery is mostly made out of reclaimed materials that would otherwise end up in landfill. One of my favourite shops her in Brisbane is Reverse Garbage in Woolloongabba where I always find plenty of bits and pieces. The inner tubes I get from bicycle shops - straight out of their bins.
I love to include beads, embroidery or copper wire into my jewellery pieces.
'ciclo' lets me combine my passion for the natural environment with my love for design and my skills as a maker and artist.
