Welcome to Prehna Designs, a part time hobby run by me, Julie Prehna, from my home in Mittagong. I am a stepmom to 2 young adults, wife to Mick and Mumma to 2 gorgeous dogs.
I work full time in the shed industry in office and safety management and study part time for a later in life career change.
Prehna Designs developed from a friend needing jewellery to go with a particular outfit and has been running on and off for 20 years.
I love the steampunk movement and pretty and unusual designs and I tend to make things I would want to wear rather than what might be the current trend. I sometimes struggle to let items go and want to keep everything for myself… I guess that’s every crafters’ problem.
I do custom designs and have some good regular clients who come back annually for custom birthday and Christmas gifts.
I am excited to be part of Highlands Handmade and very much believe in supporting the local arts and crafts community.
Please feel free to visit my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/PrehnaDesigns and view my items in progress and ask any questions. Most items on display can also have matching pieces made so if you see something you like, post on my Facebook page and let me know what you want to go with it. I tend to make earrings as they are easy to display but can do matching necklaces, bracelets, rings etc
Things I love – chocolate, Australian Shepherds, forensic crime novels, Green Day, selflessness, Steel Magnolias.
Things i don’t love so much – rudeness, poor customer service, bad drivers, superhero movies and seafood.
