Where and what did you study and what year did you graduate?
Jane: Bachelor of Fine Arts (Gold & Silversmithing), 2002, RMIT.

Three Dimensional Studies, Practical Studio, 1998-99, Victorian College of the Arts.

Where did you head after graduating?
Jane: I made work that I sold on consignment to a number of galleries. I’ve also held positions in publishing, admin…
Iris: I ran my own business Saar Design where I designed and produced jewellery and projects as a freelance designer and visual artist.

When did you launch your own business?
in-sync design was launched in December 2006.

What motivated you to start your own business?
in-sync came from a desire to create a range of products for a wider market. We wanted to use industrial processes and produce products that could be sold outright as opposed to consignment.

How would you describe your business to someone who didn’t know you?
in-sync creates contemporary jewellery with a strong emphasis on colour and a fusion between industrial process and the handmade.

How would you describe the products you design to someone who hadn’t seen them?
in-sync designs are a blend of organic geometry. They are drawings to adorn the body. The products are bold, colourful contemporary jewellery made from stainless steel and powdercoated.

What are the most challenging parts of being a designer running a small business?
Running a creative business is a very demanding and contradictory concept. Trying to stay creative and fresh, whilst maintaining sales, cash flow, and a constant expanding and varied knowledge.

What are the next steps for you?
We want to research and develop representation in overseas markets, maintain and grow our Australian market and continue to create and produce new products.
