...and something blue

in process

I love doing custom orders especially for special occasions so was rapt when recently asked to make 10 pairs of cuff links in 'tiffany blue' for a Wedding. The package was sent to America last week and the Bride-to-be now has them safely in her hands.

cards by Little Jane St.

These cards are by talented greeting designer Alarna Zinn of Little Jane St. At the last Southbank Young Designers Market our stalls were next to each other and we happily did a little trade. Once again the Little Jane St. stand was amazing, with lovely vintage props and interesting displays. I've been a fan of Little Jane St. for a while now and just LOVE the products and the attention to details like the hand sewn calico slip the cards come in. One of these cards is on it's way to Japan and the others ...well...I think they will look really nice framed in my studio :)

how was the market ?

Well we were lucky to have a fine sunny day, lots of people out and about, lovely stall holders selling amazing products so it was great! Thanks to everyone who came along. Here are a few pictures from the day...

market preparation...

the beginning of a new range...

The car is packed and ready for the Southbank Young Designers Market tomorrow. The last couple of weeks have been spent busily replenishing my lolly studs + drops, printing & cutting business cards and product tags (below). I had hoped to launch my new range of brooches + pendants (above) which are made using the off cuts and seconds from my hanafuda earring range but will have to save them for another day as I have completely run out of time.
If you are looking for something exciting to do tomorrow then head down to the markets - held on the grassy strip alongside Little Stanley St, Southbank 10am - 4pm. Some of the designers who will be there are Jaime Beattie, Little Jane St. and Thea + Sami so it's sure to be another great day!
If you do come along please drop by and say hello, it's always nice to meet people in person.

This is my favourite taiko drumming group. They used to play once a month at a local night market and at the annual festivals. The sounds they create resonate through your whole body!
