When the window display theme for SALA at T’Arts was announced, I knew I had to be part of it!  “Greenery” is the theme for the window, and I have made all of the beads from recycled glass sources.  Embellishing some, leaving others undecorated.  I have made some really new work for the window, and hope you enjoy it while it is there for the month of August!

Colour Play – Black and White #3

Continuing my obsession with all beads black and white!

I have made the necklace with assorted black and white beads.  I love the contrast of black and white.  And the black square hoop earrings are easy to wear, and look really funky!  Definitely one of my new favourite styles of earring.

So, after a really lovely break by the beach with the family, it’s back to reality!  I have to get work ready for three SALA exhibitions!

  1. Bethany Wines.  I will be exhibiting a range of jewellery made from Bethany Wine bottles!  I have been loving working with these bottles, and look forward to showing you this new range of work.
  2. Pepper Street.  Their group exhibition is “The Art of Craft” and my work for this will be inspired by the colour wheel.  I spend a lot of time looking at my colour wheel!
  3. T’Arts.  The gallery will also be showcasing members work with the theme “greenery” and I have some lovely pieces almost ready to go!

Yes, lots of work to do now to get these exhibitions delivered.

Kirra Galleries – Flame On 2017

It was fantastic to be able to visit Melbourne while the Flame On exhibition was on at Kirra Galleries!  It was an added bonus to see 3 of my necklaces in the exhibition had sold.

Big thanks to Kirra Galleries for hosting such an amazing display of Australian glass artists.  It was lovely to see the work of other artists in real life!

I took this photo of my work on display.  After I took this photo the staff members mentioned that it was going to be changed around because of the necklaces that had been sold.

This is my work after it was changed, it was nice to see it all collated on one board!  And I love how they changed the way the earrings were displayed too.  Thanks again Kirra Galleries!

Colour Play – Black and White #2

Some more black and white jewellery in this series!

I love putting black and white together in these beads, and reversing the colours too.  A bit of a statement piece, the necklace works perfectly with lots of clothes in my wardrobe!  (Think black, grey, white and red)!

I love these earrings too.  The bead sits flat against your earlobe, and then the silver wire hangs at the back of your ear, making it quite a secure stud style of earring.  I have seen them called threader earrings, and I think that name works well, as you do kind of thread them through your lobe.

If you like the look of any of these pieces, they are available in my online shop.  Click on any of the photos to take you there!

This week we are having a little break by the beach!  Time to refresh, recharge, and enjoy the school holidays with our kids.  (I love that my husband is a school teacher and we get to have these holiday times together).

No plans for the week, except to make the most of these glorious sunny winter days.  Walking, building sand castles, exploring.  And when it starts to rain, we’ll be reading, drawing, playing games and whatever else we can find to do.
