Beyond The Trapdoor
When I first moved to Perth at the young age of 19 I didn’t know anyone. I was having a fresh start without a clue in the world of what I would be doing or how I would be supporting myself. Luckily for this little Jam Jamer I had a few family members over here that would show me the ropes until I had myself settled.
After leaving Uni and a Visual Arts Degree that I no longer wanted to do I was at a loss to find my creative outlet.
The great thing was that when I first moved to Perth I was living up in the Hills of Perth and if any of you have had a chance to live up there or even visit you will understand how beautiful it is up there.
I started making clay jewellery as a hobby under the name of Lotus Dream Creations. I was a little flower power girl at the time and a lover of all things odd even then.
I started making nightmare before Christmas necklaces and as a results I was selling my necklaces at the markets in Kalamunda, A shop over in Melbourne and thus began the meeting of Adele from (at the time Vex Gifts) now known as Beyond the Trapdoor.
Adele is a little bundle of squee.
Cute as a button and allowed me to bring down my wears on consignment.
Thus created the stocking relationship I had which evolved from my different labels to now, Stocking Miss Jam Jam.
Beyond the Trap Door is in the heart of Subiaco.
