Mango Frooty exhibition

I've been a bit quiet lately because I'm getting work together for an impromptu show starting on 12th June.

The exhibition is on at the Arty Farty Cafe, 415, Darling St, Balmain, NSW.

It's not a posh gallery or art space but it's a long time since I've shown work, it's a great location, and the owners are enthusiastic so that's good enough for me.

More details as they happen but for the next couple of weeks I'm painting, getting pictures organised and the like.

daisy chains and chandeliers

More tasselled chandelier earrings and two new daisy chains.
These incorporate some of my hammered sterling silver rings to make the kooky, assymetric daisy chain necklets - perfect for a summer outfit.

Mango Frooty banners

It's been a long week.
I've caught the lurgy from him indoors and haven't gotten round to photographing and posting this week's creative offerings...
so I thought I'd share my niece Emma's lovely Mango Frooty banner concepts.
Which one is your favourite?
Have a lovely weekend everyone

Birchgrove markets

Birchgrove markets on Saturday was a good day. Not a huge amount of sales but spent the day with my good friend Aylie.

Aylie does illustration work - some of it is here.

I really need to work on my presentation - any tips comments gratefully received.

Batik and denim washable bags

I've made these as an alternative to those godawful environmentally friendly bags sold everywhere in supermarkets.

OK so these are not to replace your Prada, LV, Gucci, Balenciaga or Miu miu but to keep them pristine by providing somewhere to put that bulky pair of shoes, wet brolly and extra sandwich.

You can see the packed lunch in photo number three is of the healthy variety.

These go through the wash - the handles are cloth covered plastic tubing so will provide you with a proper grip.

I'm taking these to Birchgrove Primary tomorrow for their mothers' day market. I'll be selling these for $35AU each.

Tibetan turquoise and silver hoop necklace

So here is a silver and turqoise necklace for the weekend. The turquoise was found in Kathmandu - in a shop selling Tibetan turquoise beads by the gram. The quality of these beads is better than any I've bought anywhere else: deep deep blue and smooth pebble-like stones.

Some are small, some are big and sadly I didn't buy that many.
