Unwrapping my new website

It has been an eventful weekend! Swiftly following Unwrapped Market of yesterday, which was a very well attended event, the lovely Moz has got my web page up and running. Be one of the first to visit it at . What you see at the moment is precursor of the site to come, and we're interested in finding out what everyone would like to see on the 'real' site, so please feel free to visit and email in your feedback and suggestions.

I'm going to be loading new stock to my Etsy store over the next few days so that the lovely people who visited the Odd Girl Out stall at Unwrapped can find the pieces they saw there.

In the meantime, here's a photo of me holding down the fort at the market.

Listen and Learn

On Wednesday night I attended a talk by Perth jewellery Sophie Kyron as part of the Fremantle Art Centre's Fashion Talks series. I always love going to the FAC, if only to look for signs of ghosts (it's apparently the most haunted building in the Southern Hemisphere) and the talk was held in the lovely inner courtyard area. It was very interesting to hear that Sophie is not a trained jeweller and it seems she almost 'happened upon' her successful business, which creates jewellery sought after by mere mortals and celebs such as Kate Ceberano and Toni Collette.

And as for me...the unwrapped market is drawing ever closer and I've just edited over 100 images of the new jewellery I have created, ready to create a catalogue tomorrow. The wonderful Moz is creating a banner as we speak and with any luck we will be ready to go on Sunday.

Bow Wow - WOW!

Last night I was very pleased to particpate in a fundraiser held by the fabulous 'Ladies Who Disco' at the Geisha Bar in Northbridge. The fabulous DJ Missy held the floor with eighties tunes, which were enjoyed very much both by people who experiences that decade the first time (cough) as the young trendsetters cutting up the dance floor in Madonna and Wham tribute looks.
My jewellery together with fabulous clothing from fashion icons Wheels and Doll Baby was raffled at the end of the night to raise money for our furry friends at the Dog's Refuge Home WA.
Also this week, Ali J has blogged about an article in Xpress Magazine featuring our goodies which will be on show at the Unwrapped Market in South Perth next Sunday 16 March. They used a nice picture of my bluebird necklace in the article, which gave me a buzz.
