Bring on the bling at The Jewel of Canberra
Are you a jewellery junkie? Do you go la-la for some precious metal? Love a bit of something-something to give you some sparkle? On Sunday 13 November, the markets are definitely somewhere you want to be for The Jewel of Canberra – there will be a whole load of jewellery to really make you stand out from the crowd. You can browse the many jewellery stalls on offer and choose from a large range of jewellery styles, price points and individual pieces. Meet the designers and craftspeople who have created original pieces made from silver, recycled metal art, pearls, precious and semi-precious stones, resin, glass, ceramics and more.
New to The Jewel of Canberra this Year is Miss Chopsticks Origami Jewellery. Talk about original! Sydney-sider Parry Yang dreamed up Miss Chopsticks as a result of her miniature origami hobby, and has honed her origami skills to make her intricate creations into earrings, rings, hair pieces, necklaces, brooches and more. Can there be anything cuter than earrings featuring origami cranes, butterflies or rabbits?!
Another newbie this year is Canberra based designer/maker Robyn Apps with Rhapsody Design. Specialising in jewellery and fashion accessories, Robyn’s ‘not a toy’ range includes Lego and Scrabble tiles made into necklaces, cufflinks, earrings and more.
Canberra local Simone Carter is also back to Jewel after a few years off with her totally unique range of jewellery made from fabric buttons, jigsaw pieces, watch parts, vintage linen, broken plates and beads. She creates interesting pieces including necklaces, rings, earrings, cufflinks, cuffs and more.
Catch Simone, Parry and Robyn along with all our other jewellery creators, at The Jewel of Canberra on Sunday 13 November.
