‘For me, epoxy resin has developed beyond a hobby; it now occupies the majority of my thoughts,’ Schapelle remarked.
‘I truly adore this hobby of mine; it has given my days so much meaning.’
Schapelle sells her work on Instagram, claiming that she does “all the work” herself, including drilling and sanding. She also took part in Dancing with The Stars 2021.
She went on to note that each piece, which usually has a beach motif, is lovingly created.
‘I remember every shell I collect, and I feel affection for every stage of the process while I work on my sculptures,’ she explained.
Schapelle has previously appeared on Dancing with the Stars on Seven and SAS Australia.
She made her reality television debut on SAS Australia in November.
She, on the other hand, burst into tears after leaving the arduous military-style exhibition after only two days.
Firass Dirani’s actions led the team to run a number of laps as punishment, and she left the show after only one week.
Schapelle became a household figure after being detained at Bali Airport in October 2004 with 4.2kg of cannabis wrapped in plastic inside her boogie board suitcase.
The world watched in May 2005 as she sobbed in a Denpasar tribunal after being sentenced to 20 years in Kerobokan Prison.
Following a series of sentence reductions, Schapelle was granted parole in February 2014 after serving nine years in jail.
