About

Designing and Creating wearable Nostalgia

Welcome to Originals Lab where nostalgia is created for you to wear and enjoy.  ​
Hi, My name is Yvonne and I am the founder of Originals Lab.

My main influence growing up in Australia were Australian Artists such as Jenny Kee and Ken Done due to their eye catching and flamboyant use of colours. Also the sense of "Australia" was very present in their designs which has a significant impact on my designs.

​I have been working with polymer clay since the 1980s and enjoy making accessories that make me smile such as all my favourite childhood memories. Visits to the milkbar, the school tuck shop and good old fashioned kids parties are something that I will cherish forever, perhaps I am just a big kid at heart!

​Each piece is handmade so no two are exactly the same. I hand blend my colours and sculpt my pieces so that they resemble a miniature version of the real item. The accessories you receive from Originals Lab are as unique as yourself!
