Nothing exciting really... a simple necklace for my grandmother. A friend of hers has a similar necklace but it is made of plastic beads, my grandmother wanted the real thing!

Here is a new addition to the studio, I found her at a antique fair & was told she is from the 1940's I'm thrilled to have found such a lovely piece.

I have a slr camera that I don't know how to use... I just point and shoot, most of my photos are a testament to my lack of skill. I look at other blogs & envy the quality of their photos. I'm going to take out the manual and start to learn, maybe soon my photos will be as good as these...

I found all of these images on 'its mary ruffle' after spotting some images on the ada & darcy blog, a blog I look at every day

fabric & quill

As of March ill be starting a course at the Melbourne School of Fashion, in millinery construction & design!

Last year was only my second year of designing fascinators & I still have a lot more to learn, with this course ill learn how to create felt & cocktail hats, as well as making my own sinamay bases. I'm also looking forward to meeting other creative & like minded people. I love sharing ideas & always feel more inspired after feeding of the creative energy of others!
The piece in the photo is something I created last night... I still need to work on the balance & finish, but I'm happy with the style....

something old, something new...

When I first started making bags, this shoulder bag was one of my favourite designs, a simple shape with eclectic details.

I used a variety of coloured leathers, and I would adorn each bag with various fabrics & textured leathers. I enjoyed making them, all the little details, coloured lining, raw edges, rope handles etc.. made every bag special.

I have 2 of these lovely bags that will be available online as of Monday.
