Honeybee Handmade Art Cards

Honeybee Handmade Art Cards are no longer available ... I have discontinued the range and will focus on my jewellery and jewellery/beading tuition.

April 2010 edition of Australian Beading magazine

I am absolutely thrilled with this months edition (April 2010) (Australian Beading Vol 4. No 2) of Australian Beading. I initially submitted the peyote link earring design tutorial and photographs (Galaxy Gemdrops pg.22 to 25). Then the lovely Kelly (Editor) invited me to submit a project for the Master Class section of the magazine ..

(MasterClass pg. 68 to 71) this very beautiful bracelet was created using Delicas, a large 30mm Cosmic Ring in Golden Shadow, along with freshwater pearls, and a fabulous vintage abalone shell button. I cut this beautiful button from its original vintage button card, it is superb, they do not make them like this anymore that is for sure! Ladder stitch, herringbone and even count peyote are stitched to create this bracelet.

The vintage porcelain doll faces are showcased in the 'Treasure Chest' in this months magazine.

Happy Beading

Closure of Junk & Disorderly Shop

Sadly, Junk & Disorderly has had to close its doors for good, due to ongoing illness. Junk & Disorderly was the primary seller of my beaded jewellery here in Melbourne, Australia. Jen, the owner is thankfully on the road to recovery, following months of illness, multiple surgeries and chemotherapy.

My jewellery is now on sale at Ruby Tuesday Handmade Jewellery shop in Warrandyte. This magnificent gallery style shop is filled with beautiful handmade jewellery goodies. Several qualified jewellers are on site. The address is 90 Melbourne Hill Road, Warrandyte, Victoria, Australia. If you are in the area, drop in for a look see, tis lovely inside!
