New Fab Find


Black Cat Pendant
This black cat is my "childhood" favourite!

Recently I found myself browsing through some very talented sellers on madeit and quickly fell in love with these gorgeous pieces of yummy jewellery.

Adelaide based jeweller Minnette Michael makes jewellery from whatever materials she can get
her hands on, she has been known to use sterling silver, resin, buttons, silk thread, vintage fabric,
enamel paint, 100s and 1000s, yellow gold, cork, and most recently recycled plastic.


Strawberry n Creme Pendant



Minnette's inspiration is drawn from her love of mixed lollies, umbrella's, jewellery, chocolate,
couches long enough for laying on, rain, buttons, plastic, knitting, Corey, vintage fabric, socks,
lamps, Enid Blyton, sunshine, little ceramic containers, cowboy boots, mittens, colour, wallpaper,
daisy's, Minnie Mouse, board games, travel, chocolate chip cookies, kittens, black & white photos,
recycled paper, ballon animals, cupcakes, clouds, rainbows, snow, champagne, strawberries,
moonlight, picnics, mint green...

Resulting in what has been described as 'wonderfully nostalgic, whimsical and colourful jewellery
that often looks sweet enough to eat'.

I couldn't wear that strawberry and cream pendant because I'd be inclined to suck on it......which isn't a good look for a 38yo.

Yum! I love mixed lollies. I think I would be tempted to try and eat it if I was wearing one too.
