So Sublime

Starting out in the fashion industry, Jeannie found her creative outlet in jewellery label So Sublime. Focussing on a combination of resin and sterling silver, Jeannie has the ability to mix shapes and objects with a kaleidoscope of colours and endless design. Drawing inspiration from the 1920’s and 1930’s celluloid bakelite era, expect to see flowers, butterflies, cats, cicadas and many more little creatures from this time.

Versatility of use is a key element in the designs, as pieces can be worn as a brooch, neckpiece, hairpiece and perhaps even a belt buckle. All it needs is a little imagination by the wearer.

Come and see So Sublime and heaps more this February at The Rose St. Artists' Market.

Wonki and J

With pieces fully handmade in their modest Melbourne studio, the work of Wonki and J Ceramics have been an instant hit at the market. Their range of simple, quality and functional tableware is inspired by Australian nature and has a traditional Korean twist to keep things interesting.

They only use organic raw materials for their glaze and all clay is sourced from local suppliers.

Shonah

If old world treasures are your thing, then you'll love Shonah Tomkins and her antique inspired jewellery and accessories. Combining her skills of life-drawing and screen printing while drawing inspiration from her small town roots, Shonah's beautiful range of wearable art is totally handmade, eco-friendly and all individual. Very much reflecting Shonah Tomkins as a designer.

In-between her role teaching music Shonah is working on a new linen, demin, vintage lace and Tasmanian Blackwood range to debut at the market soon.

Not bad for a small town gal!
