International pro skater and a Newcastle local, Poppy Starr Olsen has finished 2018 on a high, winning Bronze for Australia in the first World Skate Olympics sanctioned World Championships event in Nanjing China.

Her jewellery is available both online and in stores across the country, including Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery Shop.
