Sweet Salvaged Designs.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I make many OOAK jewellery pieces using vintage and mixed metals like copper, nickle, brass and steel. I like using rosary beads, MOP pieces, old brooches, medals, lockets and various found objects for whatever I think works best for the particular piece I am working on at the time. You can see me at the Kalamunda markets, held once a month on the first Saturday of each month and various other venues that I will post about. You may email me at quilt@touch88.com.au for any inquiries.

The passages of Lyon.

Lyon is another beautiful city of France, to me the old part is more like I would imagine Italy to be like, faded earthy colors, cobbled streets and allyways that are such a delight. These allyways or passage ways ( traboule ) were first used for the silk trade and later during the war to escape from the Nazi's. They go from one street to another and often to a little courtyard where people are living , sometimes there are many dwellings from these courtyards.
