I have been getting lots of lovely feedback about the cufflinks that I have made. It seems that men are really pleased to see their favourite beer, Coopers Ale, used as the glass! I have made them with Coopers Ale, Peroni Beer, Kronenbourg Beer and Banrock Station Wine (and I’m happy to take custom orders before Christmas too)!
Available in an etched or shiny finish. Find them in my Etsy shop!
I’m making extra Champagne bottle jewellery for this market! The colour of this recycled glass is stunning, elegant and very classic.
What: Giant Twilight Christmas Market
When: Saturday 2nd December
Time: 11am until 9pm
Where: 230 Flinders Street, Adelaide
Hope to see you there!
I don’t often mix the recycled glass beads in a necklace, but I really like it when I get around to making necklaces like these. One of a kind, made from champagne, beer bottle and Green Depression Glass.
I have given you a little sneak peak of this necklace and earrings before, but I wanted to show you some more photographs. The necklace has sold, but I am happy to take custom orders if you think this might work for someone for a Christmas present. Check the shop for more information.
These classic glass and silver earrings are so easy and comfortable to wear. I have been taking requests for different colours, and I have to say the black glass earrings have turned out quite stunning! The green pair were made from a Bethany Wine bottle.
Remember this post about all of my handmade glass beads?
Well, it has been kind of annoying me that I have so many leftover beads and I never seem to do anything with them. Yes, they come in handy sometimes when things go a bit pear-shaped in the kiln, but mostly they are just left sitting in their plastic bags.
I was thinking about how I could use them, and I thought that the FIRST thing that I needed to do was to take them out of their plastic bags, and put them into plastic containers so that I could actually see them all.
The next step will be to actually make something with all of these beads, so stay tuned. I can feel some new ideas taking shape, but it might be a little bit longer before I get them out into the world.
I took my beads to the market on Sunday, and even I was a little bit shocked with how many I had accumulated! Whenever I have an order, I always make extra beads because sometimes things can go wrong! Most of the extra beads that I make can be used, usually nothing goes wrong, but sometimes it takes beads of epic proportions before I think about doing anything with them! Time to make some things….
I’m pleased to finally be able to offer recycled glass cufflinks for those people who have asked me to make them! I know they’ll make a really special gift for anyone who wears cufflinks.
I have made the cufflinks from:
- Banrock Station Wine bottle
- Coopers Ale Beer bottle
- Peroni Beer bottle
- Kronenbourg Beer bottle.
You can choose from either an acid-etched/matt finish, or leave them shiny like the bottles.
You can find them for sale in my Etsy shop.
