SHANNON’S AMAZING JEWELRY
SHANNON Miller has always been creative and for those who know him, his real specialty has been jewelry making.
“He’s always been creative and talented for as long as I have known him,” said Deitre Jackson of Currajong Disability Services who often cares for Shannon when he is at Currajong HQ.
“He’s one of those people who can create anything from anything but in my humble opinion it’s his jewelry along with indigenous artwork that are among the most incredible things he does,” she said.
“He just has an eye for it!”
The latest creations come on the back of a government imposed lockdown which allowed many, including Shannon, to tap into his creativity.
“I like doing it and it is a lot of fun,” Shannon said.
“I am happy it makes others happy,” he said.
“Hopefully I can do it more often and maybe one day all the time,” Shannon said.
While Shannon and Deitre figure out behind the scenes how to make Shannon’s venture viable, Shannon meanwhile will keep designing his bracelets.
“Seeing people smile is what it’s all about,” he said.
“If I can bring some joy to people that’s great,” Shannon explained.
When asked what he liked most about jewelry making Shannon was very open.
“Being creative and the detail that goes into doing it I really like,” he said.
“It requires time and patience which we all had during lockdown,” Shannon said.
“The dream is to one day run a store with my creations so I hope I can make it happen!”
We hope so too Shan! Great work!
