I use mostly linens and cottons in my clothing, made for comfort and ease of wearing. Made for the women who wants to be different and stand out in a crowd. I also make mostly one of a kind jewellery pieces using mixed metals, vintage findings and repurposed pieces. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any more information.
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 email@example.com for any inquiries.

A fabulous pair of shoes and some new items for Kalamunda.
These fabulous little pair of late 1880's handmade shoes arrived on Monday, they are so sweet, they have wooden soles with a metal piece around the edge, with lovely iron nails and studs all around the uppers.
Our market was a great success but very exhausting work, I am getting too old to be up till nearly 2 am and up again at 4.45am, felt like a zombie. We had such good comments on the fair and the stall holders really did a great job in getting in on the theme. There was some fabulous kimonos worn by most of the girls.
I now can concentrate on getting some stock done again, I feel abit lost when I am not creating pieces.
Some lovely bird pieces I have been making, using some vintage rosary beads etc.
And some Mother of pearl vintage pendant pieces, the heart below has special meaning for me as its engraved with the work Jacqueline, my daughters Jackies name and also my sister.
I brought some fabulous brass locks complete with their own keys, these I have been making the chain by hand, forging the steel linked chains, very hard on my hands . Gosh this doesn't sound like good English. I have some of the "Industrial Chic " pieces in the shop at Guildford called "storia"
