I guess you already know that I am going to say that I love this colour combination….a lot! It works with so many of my outfits: from my black and white clothes, through to my red tops. This is a perfect match for me! I particularly like how stark the contrast is in the black and white beads. So perfect for winter and summer too.
I’m working on a new range of jewellery for Kirra Galleries Flame on 2016. The exhibition will run from September 8 until October 8 at the gallery in Federation Square, Melbourne.
This work has been inspired by the plight of the Great Barrier Reef. I’ll tell you more about it closer to the date, but for now, here is a necklace made from a wine bottle, where I have “added” colour to the clear glass.
Even I can admit to loving winter days like this! Crisp morning, blue skies, no wind. It’s beautiful.
Thanks to everyone who visited the special Flinders Street Market on Saturday! I had a lot of fun talking to everyone.
I am in the middle of a lot of different things at the moment, and when I have lots of different things on the go, I can find concentrating on anything quite tricky! Today I am slowing down, and focusing on one of the projects that I have to finish. I am making lists (and checking them twice), of all of the things I have to get done. Lists help me focus.
I hope you are having a great day wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
I am really looking forward to being part of this extra special market at Flinders Street Market on Saturday! If you click on this link, you can get some more information about it. Hope to see you there.
Hi there! It’s winter solstice! It’s almost my favourite day of the year! I love winter solstice because I know from here on in it’s all longer days and warmer weather! Well, soon enough it will be. Yay!
I’ve been busy getting ready for the Etsy market on Saturday. This will be held at Flinders Street Market in Adelaide from 10am until 3pm. I look forward to seeing you there, if you get a chance to go.
I’m also busy working on my SALA exhibitions. They are both really different, and I am enjoying the process of putting both of them together. I’ll share more details as the time gets closer. They both run throughout August.
The special discount in my Etsy shop is available until 30 June…but…you have to subscribe to my newsletter to get the extra special offer. It might just be worth it! I’ll have some new listings going up before the 30th June.
Green is probably one of the most difficult colours to work with in glass. It tends to bleed into other colours, making it quite messy, and definitely not how it was originally intended. I have to be careful about the colours that I choose to make green work nicely. I like the contrast in these greens, creating jewellery that will work with all sorts of green clothing choices.
It was so cold here this morning! I can tell in my fingers if it’s close to zero degrees, it happens when you walk in the morning. This morning I estimated it was 3 degrees (cold finger test), and when I checked the temperature it was – 3 degrees! Tomorrow I will be walking with my gloves on I think. Winter mornings are definitely here.
Today I am finishing off some consignment top-ups, and also getting some new work ready for my website. I have been putting a lot of thought into my SALA exhibitions, and I’m pleased with where those designs are heading.
The sun is shining. The sky is blue. It’s a beautiful day here. I hope you have a lovely week wherever you are.
I was recently interviewed by Tangerine Meg for her blog! It was a fun process, and she put it together so nicely. Head on over to her blog for a look. THIS IS THE LINK.
I will be interviewing Meg for my blog soon. In the meantime, here is my favourite picture from her website:
I have been experimenting with new beads and jewellery! I will be sharing the new work over the next month or so, one new colour-way each week.
This week I have used red and purple glass to create a really regal combination of beads. Purple is a nice contrast for red, it softens it a lot from the traditional red/black/white, giving it a more feminine look.
