If you are an earring lover and haven’t heard of Haus of Dizzy, welcome out from under your rock!
Wiradjuri woman, Kristy Dickinson, is the artist behind Haus of Dizzy and the self-professed “Queen of Bling”.
Kristy specialises in moulded plastics and much of her work celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage and pride. I am going to warn you now, it’s very hard to stop with one pair of Haus of Dizzy earrings… I personally have three; the Deadly Hearts, Indigenous Pride Glitter Hearts and some custom Wiradjuri Yinaa Heart Hoops.
The Haus of Dizzy catalogue is huge! As well as pieces which give us mob an opportunity to represent our culture, there are lots of pieces appropriate for non-indigenous people to wear. Whatever your interest, whether it’s dinosaurs, being a Mum, Queer pride or protesting violence against women, Haus of Dizzy has got you covered. Haven’t got your ears pierced? No stress! There is plenty of clip on earrings as well as bracelets and necklaces available too.
More than a jewellery brand, Kristy also hosts jewellery workshops at youth detention centres and domestic violence support centres.
You can find Haus of Dizzy online, in gift shops like the Melbourne Museum, at The Iconic and on market stalls at Aboriginal events.
