Catherine the great

Tommy Ton snapped the fabulously chic French-based Australian fashion stylist Catherine Baba for his blog Jak & Jil. There's those tassel/feather earrings again.

Fabulous room envy #1

Oh, how I want a room like this...

or this...

or this...

Inspearational earrings

I plan to attempt some long, feathery and fringey earrings when I next sit down to create. Loving this pair from  I Love Wildfox blog.
Some long feather earrings (I made some time back), which got an outing out on the town recently, had quite the hypnotic effect on the fellas. Ha!

I'm baaaack...!

This one has been taking up all my time...

It's been a crazy busy year, but I've been putting things into place to make more pieces. My studio has a new coat of paint; polished floor boards are next.


After shots are not too far away.

Floral neckpiece

A box full of retro plastic flowers picked up at a garage sale have finally found their home.
The fabric they are attached to is a '70s blue and white floral-print cotton. White grosgrain ribbon keeps it all in place.

My glue gun really came into its own for this piece and will continue to do so for subsequent pieces in the same vein.

World in my hands

This old school-room world map has been hanging around for years.

It's damaged but I couldn't bear to throw it away.

So, I cut it up and turned it into a fold-over clutch.

It's fabulous pink silk shantung lining comes from this hideous-shaped but lovely-coloured bridesmaids frock.

The frock's organza lining was used for the rose corsage (previous post).

A rose, by any other name...

Fragrant roses are my favourite perfume. I photograph them simply because I am in awe of how beautiful and perfect they look. This one inspired my free-form, silk-chiffon corsage.

The best shower curtain ever!

The beautiful coral-red and white fabric attracted me to this garage sale find, but when I got closer it's true beauty was revealed - literally - a crazy shower curtain! OMG, nudie '70s-style art-nouveau chicas all over it. F A B U L O U S! The best $2 ever spent.

I'm back. I'm inspired.

Too long between posts.
Love these Indian images; inspiring stuff.
All the colourful, vintage jewellery bits and pieces I have await an Indian-influenced transformation.
