October Update

Hi guys! Just thought I'd make a little post with snippets of what I've been up to and what to expect to see soon!

Sailors Falls, Victoria. I visited a few country towns this weekend for my birthday and spent way too much money at antique shops. I picked up a few awesome pieces which I'm going to incorporate into my market display and I'm thinking about changing the shop display to match in with this style. My two favourite purchases were this old letterpress drawer, which I love the look of my brass rings on, and this silver jewellery box for displaying my new range of silver & wood rings and bracelets. These will be available in store at Olinda Collective and online on the 12th which is just over a week away!

In addition to this new range, I'm branching out a little and carefully selecting a few items to sell alongside all of my handmade goods. These items will relate to the items I stock, such as some brass spray bottles for watering your succulents, and some will be handmade by others in Melbourne like the new range of cushions I've designed using macro photos of patinas on the recycled brass and copper I work with.

The online store is also getting a makeover and will include a whole bunch of the items I currently sell at markets and in store. I'm building a little product photography studio so I can photograph each item to put in the store so you see exactly what you're getting. Stay tuned!
