Kanazawa Collection

Introducing the new Kanazawa Necklace Collection!
These new pendants are cut from beautiful Tasmanian Myrtle wood and have a brilliant gold and copper finish. The metal is gilded from real copper and gold (22.6 karat) leaf which was purchased on my last trip to Japan. I visited Kanazawa, the city famous for gold leaf and went to the museum, art studios and took a workshop.
This amazing town is obsessed with gold and the icecreams
are even served with gold leaf on top!
There are 2 designs to choose from: Geometric or Bonsai Tree.
I have also launched a new set of Bonsai necklaces
with a coloured acrylic background
- available in black, teal and maroon.

A beautiful bonsai tree which does not require any maintenance!

This bonsai is laser cut from stunning Tasmanian Myrtle Wood and is decorated with exquisite Japanese chiyogami paper on it it's foliage on both sides.
A lacquer is applied to the paper for protection and
 it also emphasises the intricate patterns on the paper.
There are 4 different styles to choose from.
On one side of the tree trunk the words "under the shade of a bonsai tree" are engraved in the Japanese language. It's our business name and so very apt!
The tree has a cross stand at the base and is inserted in a 
lovely neutral brown bonsai pot with pebbles.
Available for purchase

There's also been a little photo shoot of the feather brooches. Here are a couple of the pics - more on the Facebook page. Aren't they gorgeous?!

I've finally set up an Instagram account - I'll be posting behind the scenes jewellery pics along with some lifestyle photos. I'd be thrilled if you would like to follow me!

I've been interviewed for a few awesome blogs lately. Normally I feel a bit awkward answering questions about myself but I think I'm getting the hang of it!
