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.

The History of Cobalt Blue Seaglass
The History of Cobalt Blue Seaglass

September 17, 2019

Even though cobalt blue glass has been produced consistently over the past 400 years or so, genuine naturally tumbled blue sea glass is a rare find. Real sea glass has a slightly uneven texture and a powdery frost that cannot be replicated. In fact of the whopping 4kg's or so that Kriket recently found at Seaham, only 3 were blue.

We work from a little studio at the back of Kriket’s house. Our days are filled with hard work and lots of laughs. We obsess over each piece of glass, setting aside really unique one-off pieces for pendants, rings or bangles, and hunting down as many pairs as we can for earrings.

Flowers are lovely, but they won't be with you for months and years to come. Plus, you can't wear them out to dinner with your new black dress.
