North-West Woods necklace

This necklace takes me back to the sun-drenched beaches of Western Australia’s remote Exmouth Gulf and the Ningaloo Reef.  The beads are hand made from various woods collected from the ranges and the beaches- including snakewood, hakea, mulga, and driftwood.  The beads have been fine sanded and polished to give a gorgeous lustre and tactile organic feel.  The neckband is of Sterling silver wire and wire wrap.

This necklace has been listed for sale on my website – check it out here…

I’ve just added these two pieces to my online shop…

This ‘Shades of Grey’ necklace and pendant features transparent grey hollow blown glass beads, white disk beads, and a etched grey glass shards pendant mounted with sterling silver findings.  This is a very classy and elegant piece.  More here…

Stripey Pink and Chartreuse Blown Hollows necklace, with it’s big bold colours and design, is a very interesting piece.  The design looks very classic, but the colours, changes in texture and asymmetry are unusual.  But despite the asymmetry, the piece is beautifully balanced.  It looks and wears beautifully. More here…

Very pleased with myself!

At the last weekend’s Clarence Valley Arts Festival, I was lucky enough to pick up a couple of awards!  First Prize and Peoples Choice in the Jewellery section for the Grey Hollows and Shards Necklace and Pendant, and First Prize in the Craft Section for the Fishy Fantasy piece.

Thanks to Bobby Winger (Lunatic Fringe Design) for her work as Jewellery Steward and to everyone from the Lower Clarence Arts and Crafts Association for organising and promoting this event.
