Locally made and sold

The Ivanhoe Makers Market is on tomorrow and there are some lovely things on offer if you want to start your Christmas shopping early.  The final market for the year will be on Saturday 15 December.  I also popped into the Heide store briefly yesterday and Lene Kuhl Jakobsen's ceramics are also sold there as well as at the market.  I love her teardop pieces in particular and Lene has also started making porcelain jewellery as well.

Heide was dangerous as always and I picked up a number of Christmas presents and discovered a new New Zealand brand called Newbies - I loved their wooden jewellery trees and butterflies - the P & S Robin bird clips on the Newbies tree below are also sold at Heide - cute huh?

Finally the first Nillumbik Artists Open Studios weekend starts tomorrow (and is also on next weekend) - I've had recent dealings with Montsalvat-based jeweller Jeannette Dyke who is one of the participating artists and also love her petal necklaces.  Lots of beautiful things!
