OK, I promise this will be the final instalment of the trip to Melbourne! We had a really wonderful weekend away, and I saw some amazing art while my husband took the kids to the zoo (and yes, he has received the husband of the year medal). The other contemporary jewellery galleries I visited were:… Read More
Our trip to Melbourne on the weekend coincided with the LAST day of the Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary jewellery exhibition. This was at the beautiful Gallery Funaki. To say that I was pretty happy to see this gallery and exhibition would be an understatement! I was thrilled. The gallery is so beautiful. So… Read More
We went to Melbourne on the weekend! It was fantastic in so many ways. The main reason for the visit was to see the Flame On exhibition at Kirra Galleries. This was the weekend when they were having all sorts of flame-working demonstrations alongside the exhibition, so it was a great opportunity to see… Read More
Oh my! I love how this necklace turned out! The beads were made from a Coopers Clear bottle, and I used a bit of silver foil, pixie dust and wire to decorate the beads. I love this necklace so much, it is so different from anything I have made before. It will be heading to… Read More

I thought it might be kind of ironic/funny to make some beads from a Peroni beer bottle. Peroni is an Italian beer, and most of the lampworking glass I use is made in Italy! I love the colour of this glass. So rich and bright and pretty!
I just realised that I didn’t show you the necklace that went with the earrings from the other day, so here it is. Such a great colour, a real show stopper! I like to let the colour of the Skyy Vodka bottle shine through, so I don’t do a lot in terms of embellishing the… Read More
