About Liana

My Photo
Brisbane, Australia
My studio is located in Brisbane, Australia. For the past 10 years I’ve been enjoying creating jewellery designs from an array of mundane materials. Tupperware and knitting needles have remained a firm favourite. My designs have been published numerous times, graced the shelves of many wonderful galleries and stores and been worn by those whose aren’t afraid of colour and attention. All of which I am very grateful for. For several years I’ve also been fortunate enough to work with many businesses as a coach and workshop facilitator.

Big Jewellery Giveaway!


Seems like my plastic jewellery making obsession has been going on for 10 years now! Can you believe it? I'm not sure if I can. Of course I don't see an end to it anytime soon. To thanks all of you wonderful people for supporting me, encouraging me and simply showing an interest in what I've been creating, I thank you. That's what has really been keeping me going.

To celebrate all those years of bending knitting needles and cutting up Tupperware I'm giving away one big jewellery prize! All you need to do to enter this competition (winner will be picked randomly) is:

1. Be a newsletter subscriber
2. Leave a comment below

Easy as that. I'd also appreciate it if you liked my Facebook page although that's not a condition of entry. That would just be nice!

Entries end Friday April 12 and the winner will be announced via Facebook, on this blog and twitter the following week.

Thanks again. I hope you win! x

PS If you are having trouble posting a comment here I've added a post to my FB page where you can leave a comment and enter too (it's the highlighted one). http://www.facebook.com/LianaKabel.art.design.jewellery

First impressions are always important for all of us, especially for people which are constantly accessing web pages looking to be informed by the content marketing Brisbane. For those ones, the content marketing is really important. The web design brisbane will attract them but if there is nothing solid they will lose interest and maybe they will never visit your website again. The content marketing is helping you in building or improving your image and also in highlighting your products and services.
