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
Hello! Thought I'd pop by with some news and bits and bobs! Firstly,
my lovely local creative friend Jen from Red Parka Designs is hosting a
giveaway on her blog. There are loads of cool prizes and includes an
Under the Shade of a Bonsai Tree feather brooch. >>Click here to enter <<
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! @shade_of_a_bonsai
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!
Perhaps you'd like to read a bit about me and my work?

I have also been interviewed for another exciting feature which will be in print soon.
It should be out next week! Stay tuned!
I'm going to Japan again in October! I cannot wait. I have plans to
visit chiyogami paper shops and museums and possibly do a workshop. I
will no doubt come home laden with new supplies and ideas.
