The lovely writer Bronwyn McNulty summarized my work well
” In 2000 Amanda Coutts set off for Nepal, armed with love of the earth and a vision that led to the production of fair trade beaded sandals that supported the local women and spread the message
“Tread Lightly on this Earth, learn it’s lessons as you go, leave it as you found it if not better. God is Nature”
Amanda was ahead of her time, and her gorgeous boutique, which opened in 2009, continues to break the retail mould. Initially she created all the stock herself, but a look at her work-life balance last year prompted her to invite others to join, what is now a creative commercial haven for artists.”
Some amazing talent has arrived at the Brunswick Head Shop to share the journey and bring a new energy and force into town.

I dug red soil from my hinterland home and nicked some sand off the beach at Brunswick Heads where Peace by Piece has its first shop.
