Craft Hatch Wrap Up

On Saturday I had a lovely day as a stall holder at the Craft Victoria Craft Hatch Market at the SLV. Despite my chronic hay fever (which settled as the day progressed) I really enjoyed meeting the other stall holders and seeing their beautiful wares but most of all loved meeting all the gorgeous people who made the effort to venture out on a drizzly Melbourne morning to say hello and purchase some locally made goods. I was so excited to meet jewellery designer Victoria Mason, fellow artisan and blogger Evie Smith (of Handmade Romance) and am loving the gorgeous photo collage that I purchased from Liesl Pfeffer. Thanks very much to Kim and Pip at Craft Victoria, people and a place that do great things for Victorian craftspeople x

It's 11pm on Friday night and I've just finished making and packing away my wares ready for the Craft Hatch Market at the State Library tomorrow. Boy has it been a busy week! Can't wait to get up and get there! The market is from 11am to 4pm and features the work of 25 emerging Melbourne designers. I'll be selling brooches, necklaces and some earrings! Hope you can pop on over and pay me a visit! X em

The Fabulous Design Files

Hello Again! I realise that this is a week late now but better late than never right...? I would like to say a very very very big thank you to the girls at Craft Victoria and The Design Files for giving me the absolutely amazing opportunity of being featured as part of the Craft Hatch Guest Blog on The Design Files. I can't thank them enough for your kind words and amazing support. If you would like to see my interview etc go to you'll just have to scroll down a bit to find it! Links to Craft Victoria and The Design Files can be found on my blog.

Fantastic Fimo!

Me and my childhood creative medium of choice, Fimo, have recerntly been reunited and boy is it great to be back together! When I was a child in the 1980's I used to totally deck myself out in Fimo accessories including a world globe pendant on a leather strap and 20 cent coin sized dog earrings.....! This weekend I started making some of these (far more restrained) colourful Fimo bead and chain necklaces. I have been enlisting the help of my Papa who is currently visiting from Perth to help warm up and knead the Fimo for me (he's  a good dad!) and whipped up some more beads last night. Stay tuned for more colour combos! Thank you to my gorgeous friends for modelling! x
