Three of these pairs of earrings are made from Gin and Tonic bottles. The dark blue pair is made from Vodka and Tonic bottles. I don’t even know if that’s a thing, but I loved the beads together! Starting to put a small collection of work together for my next shift at @tartscollective in just over a week.
About 20 years ago I attended my first glass bead making workshop on Kangaroo Island. I left with these beads, and made this bracelet. I left knowing this was something I really wanted to do, but living in a 1 bedroom apartment in Sydney at the time meant I had to wait a while before I could do it. Have to say it was worth the wait.
Heading off to @tartscollective today with this new necklace featuring my recycled glass beads made from gin and wine bottles, along with semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls. Lovely to see restrictions being eased in South Australia as we start to move forward again.
Necklace #3. I still have beads left from my “favourites” series of work, but this is the last piece of jewellery in this small collection. I have loved sharing it with you, and thank you for all the lovely comments and purchases. The bits and pieces that haven’t sold will be headed to @tartscollectiveon Saturday March 12 when I work there next. This necklace is $110, no extra for postage in Australia.
Necklace #2. All my favourite beads in my favourite colours. This necklace has less beads than the first necklace, but still a lot of colour and fun. $125, no extra for postage in Australia.
