Colour of the Week – Coopers Sparkling Ale

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.

Beautiful jewellery made from a Coopers Sparkling Ale bottle.  The ultimate in recycling.

It only takes one person….

Someone emailed me yesterday about my 12 Days of December offers.  I won’t go into the details of their email, but let me just say that what started out as a fun thing to do, has now left me feeling like I have done the wrong thing by my customers.  I thought…if one person is complaining….what are others thinking?

So, this is an open apology if I have offended anyone with my special offers.  I have thought  a lot about it overnight, and have decided to stop them.

Everyone can still get 20% discount in my Etsy shop using the code THANKS.  That one is there forever and you can use it at any time.

Thanks for understanding.

Here is a photo of the Coopers Sparkling Ale necklace and earrings I made for the Urban Cow “Adelaide” Exhibition recently.  I realised the other day that I didn’t have a photo of it.
