Impelled by a lifetime curiosity about jewellery fabrication, three years ago Vanessa decided to switch career gears from technical writer to metalsmith. She is the artist behind Dual Citizen Designs®.
As an avid outdoorswoman, she loves experimenting with geometric shapes and mechanical movement often inspired by her rock-climbing gear. You’ll discover that many of her designs are gender-neutral and incorporate clean lines with an industrial flare.
Vanessa is an Australian and Canadian citizen, and lives full-time on the south-east corner of Gambier Island where she and her partner live in their off-the-grid home.
