Kimmyg introduces her collectable perfume bottles … Penel Bigg (in collaboration with Brenda Coleman) lists fabulous new unique glass and silver jewellery … Carolyn Martin lists from her ‘Terra Australis~Cave Art’ Series

Kimmyg

Kimmy has been collecting perfume and scent bottles for many years and now is making her own!  Oh dear…….which ones to keep…….which ones to sell?!? The perfume bottles listed this week are just the beginning as she is currently working on more very much inspired by her recent visit to Kangaroo Island and also by her own imagination. All bottles have hand-ground bases to make them sit flat and the stoppers have been ground in to create an air-tight seal.  All bottles will be initialled making them highly collectible.

Below is a taste but to see more visit her

Penel Bigg and Brenda Coleman

Penel’s work is always fabulous but her latest submissions, which are the products of a collaboration between herself and Brenda Coleman are truly sensational.  These ‘one of’ totally unique pieces of jewellery, featuring Penel’s beads are the sorts of things that would be destined to be family heirlooms! In addition, Penel has listed other jewellery of her own making.

Rifie Hogan joins the Northcoast beadmakers team plus new listings from Sarah Murphy and Teri Roberts

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:32 am by kim

Marife ‘Rifie’ Hogan

To describe Rifie’s beads as having character would be an understatement. These you have to see to believe ~ Rifie’s beads ARE characters, from spacemice with eyepatches to candy wibbit frogs! Rifie’s beads are, like Rifie, larger than life. Her latest passion is her Totem series, inspired by a bead challenge she recently participated in, Rifie has come up with bears, birds and koalas in totem form. The detail in these beads is awesome! Make sure you have a look at her entire gallery as I can just about guarantee you won’t see them again once they are sold, they are absolute collectors items.

To learn more about Rifie visit her artist page or visit her galleries>>

Sarah Murphy

Sarah’s recent additions to her gallery include her new range of ‘Boomerang Beads’! How very appropriate for an Aussie beadmaker. Needless to say, the latest submissions are as beautiful as ever adorned with geckos, redback spiders and jellyfish to name but a few. This particular series are in Sarah’s Unique Art Glass Focals category. Sarah has also listed new items in her Sculptural and Critters category…..but……

Teri Roberts

Teri has listed some fabulous fused pendants which you will find in her Fused Glass Pendants category as well as a couple of gorgeous pairs featuring dichroic glass and a glittering set again featuring dichroic. I’m sure you will agree that these beads would make a disco ball dull by comparison so a fitting title is her ‘disco queen’ series!
