Happy Valentines Day!!!!!!

Sacred Starburst Heart brooch in Etsy Treasury!

It's not often that an Etsy treasury gets me really excited. For those of you who don't know what a treasury is, its a collection of Etsy creations from various makers curated by another Etsian. They can be really lovely and they are certainly a buzz to be included in.  But the themes while always nice and always well curated are themes you just fall into - this one by the folks at FolkHeartRecords had me thinking about just how vibrant and creative the curators in Etsy can be!

The challenge:  There is a secret message behind this treasury that will wake you up, make you smile and want to share the day.... click to see the treasury and comment if you can figure it out!

NEW!! Vegan Wrist Cuffs!

Pagoda Blossom Cuff - Blossom Pink
We have a wonderful new product we are adding to our range.  Its a range of wrist cuffs made from vinyl and acrylic felts - no leather, no wool... just the way we like it!  We always prefer to use non animal products where and when we can.

There are a couple of designs at this stage and more to come.  They will retail at a special introductory price starting at $20 for a Tweety Cuff to $26 for a Pagoda Blossom Cuff.  The blossom pink one shown here was a gift to the people who sold us our dear Crazy Ivan Laser machine. We added this cuff into the package with their generous purchase of our products to showcase in a upcoming trade show in the US in February!

Shiny Surprises!

Wellard Markets - what can I say!  OK it was a really nice day - the customers were far and few but everyone had the same customer base.  But what I really loved about the day were the people we knew who came by, some to see us and some just by accident and it ended up being a wonderful family & friends day!  Worth the stall fee on its own.
Wellard Markets January - click for larger image - again the layout is a bit limited by wind (such a windy town! :)

We had some wonderful feedback about the new products and as a result we have applied for William St festival Markets and Unwrapped Designer Market and are very excited about the prospect of attending those!

Also, I have just been informed that our Ice Berg "Ice Bitch" ring used in a photo shoot is being submitted to the next issue of Oyster Magazine! Karen magazine and another Mag which I am getting the name to soon from the Stylist -  How excitment!! :P

Our Ice Bitch ring

These will be released on our Etsy shop when the Mag is - but register for your interest in the comments section below. It's set to retail for a bargain at $15 (plus shipping) and stock is limited so get in soon!
