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 a finalist in the Toowoomba Contemporary Wearables exhibition (see second photo below).
I also exhibited jewellery made from a Coopers Sparkling Ale bottle as part of the “Wear a Piece of Adelaide” Fringe exhibition held in 2013.
I love working with Coopers bottles for 2 reasons. First, they are a South Australian company. And second, they are a very environmentally conscious company. Win-win. Both things that resonate completely with my work. South Australian, eco-conscious.
Here is a small sample of work created from a Coopers Sparkling Ale bottle.
