Happy Friday β˜€οΈ
.
Whilst it's quite grey and gloomy in the Adelaide hills (Winter is here 😫) I thought I'd send you some sunny bright yellow warmth in the form of this coca cola cup!
.
.
Along with vintage saucepan lids, I've been meticulously cutting it up into tinsy tiny pieces to create 'metal glitter'. A slow process but oh so worth it!
This glitter, and the other parts of the saucepan lids and cup are part of a collaboration in the making.
.
It's a little exciting!!

I recently delivered an entirely new range of pendants, necklaces, earrings, studs and brooches to @murraybridgeregionalgallery 
.
.
Pieces remaining from the previous range (there's a couple of pendants and dangly earrings) will now be coming with me to @thelastofthecreatives on Sunday June 20th.
.
.
I dramatically reduce prices on my end of range pieces and will start sharing them on my stories. 
.
.
If you'd like a piece and you're situated interstate / over seas / not able to attend the market - please sing out...I'll be doing a big postal run post market day.

Happy Thursday y'all!

It's becoming increasingly obvious to me that I don't perhaps promote my business as well/much as I should!

β˜† The Last of the Creatives β˜†
 @thelastofthecreatives 
.
.
A market that (after years of thought) was created by myself and was founded in 2019. It was a huge success in June and December (despite the devastating bushfires) and I was quietly excited for 2020.
....then covid happened....
.
.
Fast forward to now and I am feeling so lucky to be holding it once again.
.
.
"The Last of the Creatives" is UNIQUE.
One of a kind. And aptly appropriate when you consider my work!!
.
.
It's a one day event where artists, designers, craftspeople sell:
One off pieces, experimental work, sample stock, discontinued ranges, ex-exhibition work, perfectly imperfect pieces....
.
It's about creating a more circular, sustainable, healthy economy.
It's about changing customers perceptions about those "end of range" pieces.
It's about community....supporting local businesses and bringing people together.
It's about supporting established and new emerging Creatives.
.
.
I'm extremely proud of it.
.
.
I'll be attending as a Stallholder Creative on Sunday June 20th 
(I just haven't gotten round to promoting myself yet...but I will!!)
.
.
I'll start sharing pieces to my stories of work that I will be selling there. 
And please, go check it out!

Did you know that today is World  #beeday ?! 🐝
A day where beekeepers and nature conservationists are united in encouraging improved conditions for bees to build pollination security and to safeguard our food security.
.
.
I'm currently researching  #beefriendly  #flowers Which one's will flourish in the garden....whilst at the same time encourage more bees. My son's are  very aware of bees and appreciate all that they can do. (Aside from the stinging bit Ashton tells me!)

New shapes | New designs

Did you know?!
.
.
I create all the shapes and designs you see in my work. They start with a really rough pencil sketch ✏ I then define the shape with a thin marker πŸ–‹and cut it out with scissors βœ‚οΈ
.
.
I then trace around the shape, marking it onto my work surface (laminate, flooring, metal etc).
Dependant on how many I need to make, I will quite often create a 'hard' template out of a laminate sample to reuse over and over again.
.
.
I keep a pile of laminate samples just for this purpose....samples that are scratched, damaged and ones that simply won't work in my designs.
Finding some use for them rather than land fill.

New shapes | New direction | New collection | New look
.
.
I've just dropped a small mountain of new stock and brand new range @farrago.ali in Mount Barker, Adelaide hills, SA.
.
.
I'll start showing you some of the pieces....there's quite a lot!! 
.
.
I love how these have turned out. I had a concept in my head, and whilst sawing out all these little laminate "leaves" I kept thinking to myself "these had better work!!"
