Creating and making stunning wearable art comes naturally to Anna Kolusniewski, who is recognised as one of Australia’s leading costume jewellery designers, specialising in theatrical, period and recycled styles. Check out her Instagram for some of her amazing headpieces and costumes, including designs made from bottle tops, cable ties and even recycled rubber car mats.

Over the past three decades her work has featured in numerous magazine shoots and exhibitions, and was memorably highlighted in the 2020 Art and Industry Festival, and in the 2021 experimental post-lockdown immersive dining experience Higher Order.
