Quinn Jewellery is a range of handmade polymer clay necklaces, rings, brooches and earrings. A side hobby for Jo Quinn, she uses jewellery making as an escape from the uni student routine of work>study>eat>sleep>cry. Quinn aims to highlight the importance of supporting local craft as a sustainable alternative to purchasing massed produced jewellery pieces. Since starting the jewellery brand, Jo has had her work on display at numerous markets and in a handful of stores around Melbourne. While Quinn is no longer as active as it once was, jewellery making is still very much a passion for Jo!

In 2015, 20% of each product purchased went towards the Centre for Eye Research Australia. This was achieved through the Everyday Hero program as part of Run Melbourne in 2015. Along with the pledge to donate a percentage of items sold, I also "trained" and ran in the half marathon to show my support for eye research in Australia.
