Murray Bridge Artist of the Month – Purple


It all started with a request from an artist for some purple or pink or red beads in this style, made from recycled glass.  When it finally clicked on how I might possibly do that, I was hooked!  I have really enjoyed making these beads (these ones were made from a wine bottle), and I am really loving how the jewellery has turned out.  The hoops are something new for me, and I love that you can take the little bead off and possibly change it for different beads down the track.

I have loved putting this collection of recycled glass bead jewellery together, and I can’t wait to deliver it to Murray Bridge Regional Gallery on Tuesday 12 January!

Murray Bridge Artist of the Month – the Gold Set


The second set I am sharing for the exhibition.  The beads were made from Beer Bottles!  I then dripped the glass to form the shape, and finally added the gold leaf.  I love the colours in this set of jewellery. I am not a brown or a gold person, but even I would wear this jewellery.  I tried the more simple necklace with some of my black/grey clothes, and it looked right at home.  I wasn’t expecting to like this quite so much!  I’m glad I tried it!
