Welcome to my studio.
This gallery shows some of my favourite pieces. Each piece is hand-made and one of a kind, but if you are interested in getting something made, I would love to hear from you. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed making it.

About Penny

Penny Gillespie is a contemporary jeweller and silversmith who lives and creates on Minjerribah [Stradbroke Island] off the coast from Brisbane.
At Curly Red Dog studio Penny creates individually handcrafted pieces inspired by the ever-changing colours, textures, light and sounds of Minjerribah. She draws on the bird and marine life, the land formations and plants she sees in her local environment.

Penny also collects interesting bits and pieces from the beaches and incorporates these into her work.

Penny named her business after her dog Bonnie who is a constant presence and companion in the studio.
