JAKE CHEESEMAN


THE PERFECT ADD-ONS?

A: My name is Jake Cheeseman, I’m a jeweller from Melbourne. I grew up in Byron Bay by the beach and moved to Melbourne in 2015 to study Graphic Design. I’ve been making jewellery on the mien of my full time job for about 2 years now. The style of jewellery I make is quite dainty, friendly and cute. I also love the beach and surfing whenever I get the chance!

Q: How did you start out making jewellery? Can you tell us about your creative process and where you find your inspiration?

A: Before I was making jewellery I spent my free time embroidering cute little designs onto tees and painting, also staying creative through crafty little hobbies and projects. I taught myself how to make jewellery. I started out making cute things for myself, then for friends, and it went from there!

Everything I make is handmade to order. I usually create my pieces one of two ways. The first is carving the piece out of wax to be cast in metal (gold or silver), where it’s then finished and polished in my studio. The second, I 3D design the piece on a CAD program, where it’s 3D printed and cast, before finishing/polishing.

I find inspiration in anything cute and happy. Flowers, cartoons, basically anything warm, friendly and fun :-)

SIENNA LUDBEY


Q: Hi Sienna, it’s so great to meet you! Can you tell us about yourself and what you do?

A: I’m SISI ~ I started the my bag brand Hello SISI just over 2 years ago. Hello SISI is over the top cute bags which feature all your favourite nostalgic cartoon friends. I make tote bags and purses. My signature is the sparkly smiley face keychain that comes with all bags.

Q: How did you get started on making your bags? Can you tell us about your creative process and where you find your inspiration?

A: I had just got back from my first trip from Japan super inspired but really broke. I wanted to do something creative when I would get home from my cafe job. But I didn’t want it to cost much so I would sew together all these lolly wrappers that I brought home from Japan and just started playing around and slowly started making these little bags. I look back on the ones from the beginning and it’s nice to see how far they have come. I was really lucky and met Ellie who runs COCO store, she was my first stockist and gave me heaps of tips and help for starting Hello SISI.

Polo Ralph Lauren?

A: My birthday! Hehe I love my birthday so much, so I am hanging out for the 11th of Jan to have a margarita with all my girlfriends and hopefully a dance.

Q: You’re wearing the PUMA Cali Sport, what do you love about a white sneaker?

A: They go with everything! Such an easy shoe to style and wear with lots of pieces. I am loving the little bit of extra height on the Cali’s also!

Q: Jake is wearing the new PUMA CA Pro. How would you describe Jake’s style?

A: Jakes style is very relaxed. He loves Dickies and a vintage tee. It’s always simple and cute with lots of his gold jewels. On our first date he pulled out a Velcrow billabong wallet which has since disappeared which I think is for the best haha

Q: What inspires you most about Jake?

A: He inspires me in so many ways but the one thing that really comes to mind is how hardworking he is. He works a full time job and manages to make all of this incredible jewellery on the side. He makes use of all of his time so well, I strive to be as organised, hardworking and kind as he is.
