Meet The Maker: Nothing Jaded
Tell us about yourself and what you do at the EPM?

Nothing Jaded brings together metalwork and precious stones with an unapologetically harmonious vibe. Bold colours, vivid combinations, and eclectic mixes of atypical stones and unique sterling silver findings. At their heart, Jade Neylan’s handcrafted creations are influenced and defined by electric anthems and endless summers.

When did you first know you wanted to be creative?

Early days at primary school. Art was always my favourite subject.

Describe your perfect day...

Sunny, calm conditions on back beach with rock pools to swim in.

What is your best ever creative moment?

When I am in a peaceful, natural surrounding like on my Fathers deck at his property in Metung. Not a single soul to be seen or heard, except for the chirp of the birds in the trees. It allows my creative intent to flow uninterrupted in perfect natural light.

What's the scariest movie you have ever seen?

Children Under The Stairs

What's the best advice anyone ever gave you?

Don't be scared to give it a go

What's your fav tunes to get your creative juices flowing?

Keep The Fire Burning - Gwen MCCrae
Pretty much any funk track. Friday afternoons listening to the Break Down Show on PBS is my all time fave to be creating in my studio

What do you love most about the EPM/LBM?

The relaxed, friendly and happy vibe that all stall holders and market goers seem to be at these two super, cool events.

Where do you see your business in the next 5 years?

Hopefully expanding my wholesale platform to a wider audience.
