Young Designers Market

You Stay Glassy, Brisbane.
Curly Jo Design at YDM

It’s sometimes hard to tell if its really winter here in Queensland, especially when you meet bright and bubbly designers who are so passionate about what they do, selling their wares on a beautiful Sunday in the sun! Take Jo for example, she’s been creating the most amazing jewellery with her own two hands for years now, and we’re so lucky to have her as a regular at the Young Designers Market and The Collective Markets too.


We wanted to know why Jo does what she does, and she told us. Now we’re in love with the person and not just her brilliant product!


“Hey Jo, what’s your style?” we asked… “Eclectic, peasant, bohemian with a touch of whimsy” she says. Find out more about Curly Jo Design here at YDM.
