The (Melbourne) Magazine’s Top 100, 2011

12 Dec

Wow, what an honour to be featured along side all of these amazing people!

Melbourne's most influential, inspirational, provocative and creative people for 2011

Sustainable, social and ethical change makers made up a big part of this year’s Top 100. Among them, the lovely Nerida Lennon is making a documentary on sustainable fashion and the future of the fashion industry, the talented Anisha Bhoyro is a slow fashion advocate, who’s approach to fashion involves using zero-waste design principles when designing her garments, and the forward thinking Juliette Anich, co-founder of The Clothing Exchange and creator of Urban Food Maps

'From these hands'

I’ve had a few enquiries about the quartz-crystal necklace I’m wearing in this shot. While this particular piece is a one-off, I will be making more. But as I have decided to only use second-hand crystals (that which I can pick up at op-shops, garage sales and through trusted sellers online), you may have to be patient. If you would like one of these necklaces and have a crystal you’d like me to use I’d be happy to make one to order. Otherwise email me and I’ll pop you’re name on the waiting list.

Speaking of my jewellery, I have new pieces in e.g.etal and they have a gorgeous new online store – yum-o!

And last but not least – check out my new-look website designed by the uber-talented Jacqui Lau. And my modest little BigCartel store selling Gift Certificates for The Treasury and my Little Wonder earrings made out of Sterling Silver and recycled plastic.

Enjoy!

The Treasury jewellery fixing recreation workshop – Christmas Special!

4 Dec

Had the most wonderful time yesterday at The Treasury workshop!

The lovely miss Lara McPherson from Sustainable Fashion Australia was in attendance, along with the equally dashing Verity McLucas of Future Fashion Now fame.

Apart from the usual fixing and re-imagining of our old jewellery, we also made pompoms out of vintage fabric to put on the Christmas tree!
Its very easy and looks wonderful – you’re welcome to use the idea for yourself. Happy making!
