Look out Handmade Canberra we're on our way!

We are currently in a bit of a frenzy in the studio, preparing for our first stall at Handmade Canberra on September 7th and 8th. Over the past ten years, Canberra’s award winning Handmade Market has become one of the country’s largest, independent Australian-made markets.

Starting from a tiny gathering of just 35 stall holders at the Albert Hall in 2008, the market now operates quarterly, attracting 270+ stallholders (with a waiting list of 800) and an average of 25,000+ visitors per event. You can see why we’re so excited to be a part of it!

With a passion for supporting independent, small and creative businesses, Handmade Canberra his known nationally as a well-organised, supportive and friendly event, representing the best in Australian handmade design and produce. We are thrilled to be accepted to take part and can’t wait to meet a whole new set of customers.

Opulent - which is inspired by the rich, intoxicating colours of the sea surrounding Sydney Harbour and incorporates beautiful colourful gemstones or quartz combined with some of our more rare and exotic seaglass nuggets. With each piece completely unique, this fun, bold collection is designed for those who like to make a statement and aren’t afraid of a little colour.

Gem-set - a beautiful, luxe and slightly bohemian collection which combines pure gold and silver charms cast from real nuggets of seaglass alongside perfectly frosted nuggets of antique seaglass. Set into the charms are tiny semi-precious gemstones such as London blue topaz, white sapphires and tourmalines. Designed as keepsakes for those who have a strong connection to sea and who love minimalist, beautiful jewellery.

We know Mothers Day 2020 is going to be difficult for many of us.
Even if our mum lives around the corner, there's a strong chance we won't be able to give her a hug and gifts will be left carefully outside the front door. Businesses everywhere are struggling to stay afloat due to the necessary social distancing, so we are encouraging you to choose carefully where to spend your money this year. 
Here is our small selection of hand-crafted gifts from companies we love, and most of whom we know personally.
