excellent new multicoloured brooches and earrings. all hand coloured in with pencils, each piece totally different. its been fun to go back to more old school methods, and loving the multicolourness just in time for springtime!

lots of new triangle earrings can be found at pussycat black in melbourne.

and the online shelves of modamuse also recently filled up!

AND a new sydney store stocking jenhalldesigns brought to you by the lovely Finders Keepers folk. 'Follow' is opening soon and will be packed full of good things.

gosh what a long time between posts... I am not a blogger by nature!
so much has happened too. I went to Sydney and Brisbane to do the Finders Keepers markets there with Belinda of Brkich. Both long weekends were just lovely and quite a success! Met lots of lovely fellow makers, and sampled the various charms of each city location.
Most recently we did the State of Design Festival bumper edition Craft Hatch market at thousand pound bend last weekend, such a great location. And I was even allowed to man the stall by myself for the first time, and no great disasters happened either!

Finders Keepers March Market

Great fun had by all a couple of weekends ago at the 2nd Melbourne Finders Keepers Market. Here are some obligatory shaky over excited happy snaps of the stall I shared with my market buddy Belinda of Brkich.

Check out my new florally range of wooden photographic earrings and also limited edition hand drawn cloud brooches and raindrop earrings that literally flew off the shelves! Apart from the massive cloud brooches, it seems its just me who likes to sport ridiculously large brooches... All the little cute ones disappeared though and were the surprise best seller of the weekend- yipee!

See also a great official market round up on the Finders Keepers website.
Belinda of Brkich did an excellent version too and lovely local maker Simply Phoebe gave us a little shout out in her blog post about the market too (AND she makes great fabric necklaces AND she bought a brooch from me, how nice!)

florally foliage inspiration for new range!

My latest range (one of, more to follow...) was inspired particularly by these 3 images. Arent they lovely, dont you just want to wear them on your ears......?

The first is a gorgeous old floral couch just hanging around on the porch at a country hotel we stayed in (yes I wish I had made them an offer). The next is my big big brother taking a dive in our back garden at home, which in summer at least if always full on florally and green. And also a certain someone honeymooning in the middle of nowhere in Norway, surrounded by leafy texture and moss.
