My name is Mary, I am a Brisbane based fashion designer by trade who formerly studied and worked in women's fashion production from 2001-2011. After a few years break to raise little ones, I started a successful children's wear label, which was home based. It was a very fulfilling business, where I was blessed to dress children from around the world. As my children grew my passion turned to other things. Having always been brooch obsessed, then moving onto quirky earrings, I fell in love with acrylic and more importantly fell in love with how it made me feel to wear accessories and support other makers. This feeling continued to grow and it was time to move on from my trade and learn something completely new. I dedicated myself to learning the intricate skill of acrylic jewellery design to align with my true passion of designing uniqe, retro inspired accessories. All Mary Bobbin designs start with a sketch, are designed and made Brisbane.
