It has been 2 weeks since I had a walk! I am so grateful that I feel well enough to go out again. Last day of winter, hooray! Another winter over. Thanks to everyone who visited me at Flinders Street Market on Saturday. It was such a lovely day at the market, I really enjoyed… Read More
I am really enjoying the opportunities to do the Flinders Street Markets. This weekend I will be there on Saturday from 10-3. It looks like the weather will be nice too!
I admit that the Peroni Beer Bottle beads started as a bit of a joke. You see, it’s an Italian beer, and that is where most of the glass that is used for glass bead-making is manufactured. I thought it would be funny to take the Italian Beer bottle, and recycle it to make glass beads!… Read More
No walk for me this morning, in fact it’s been almost a week since my last walk, and I’m really missing it. I’ve been quite sick, the sickest I’ve felt for a long time, and I don’t like it at all! Here’s to a week of feeling better. I think I’m almost better, but I’m… Read More

OK, I confess, Coopers Sparkling Ale is my favourite beer! I love being able to use the bottles to make glass beads. I featured jewellery made from a Coopers Ale bottle it in my Anti-Depression Glass exhibition. In 2013 a necklace of mine, made from Coopers Sparkling Ale and 14ct Gold Leaf, was featured as… Read More
Every now and then I go on a mission to find a particular type of glass. It might be Green Depression Glass, or white glass (which is really hard to find by the way), or like the other day I was on a mission to find non-matching sets of glasses. These non-matching sets of glasses… Read More
It’s getting lighter in the mornings. And brighter! Hooray! I am looking forward to being part of the Ink Crush market at Flinders Street Market on Sunday August 16. I am working on a new range of beads and jewellery especially for the market. I’ll share some pictures on Thursday! SALA has been great fun.… Read More
