Where and what did you study and what year did you graduate?
In 2000, I completed first year studies in a Bachelor of Applied Arts (Metals & Jewellery) at Monash University.
From 2000 to 2002, I worked for Candy Spender a Melbourne based costume and fashion jewellery maker. In 2004, I moved to Adelaide to hire a bench at the Gray Street Workshop and then in 2006 became an associate at the JamFactory in Adelaide.

When did you launch your own business?
I launched own business in 2004 when moved to Adelaide and wanted to sell work through galleries and retail stores.

How would you describe your business to someone who didn’t know you?
I’d describe it as an experimental branch of my arts practise.

How would you describe the products you design to someone who hadn’t seen them?
I would start by saying they are not all ‘products’. But the ones that are, are wearable or functional in some way but the function may have an element of disfunction within it.

What are the most challenging parts of being a designer running a small business?
Trying to be a business person.

What inspires your design projects?
Systems, thoughts and process.

What are the next steps for you?
I am currently trying to arrange a mentorship with an established Australian designer to work on some more product based objects. Concurrently, I’m developing the profile of my existing jewellery work both overseas and here in Australia. My plan for the business over the next two to five years… Crank it up and let it rip!

Meghann Jones received a scholarship from Arts SA and CraftSouth to participate in Springboard Stage One.
