Anna-Lisa Backlund is a graphic designer and style editor, and her day job includes researching accessories and homewares with a particular focus on Australian design. She loves exploring all types of accessories, and gets just as excited about costume jewellery as she does about craft and contemporary hand-made jewellery.

Trained in electronic art and ceramics, Anna-Lisa also spends time making objects such as beads and vases, using a home 3D printer as well as hand-made processes. She is always on the lookout for new technologies and materials. A strong influence is architecture and interior design, particularly the surface textures of bricks, wood, paints and stone.
