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.

Blacbrail Atelier

Blacbrail Atelier was launched at the start of 2016 by local silversmith and designer, Indigo. Working out of a small studio in Melbourne, Indigo has turned her fascination and interest in textures and forms into unique pieces of wearable art - created from precious metals. Always looking to push the boundaries on design and wearability, Indigo continues to evolve her techniques in order to recreate textures such as crumpled baking paper, folded paper or tin foil and more recent designs that mimic eroded concrete and aged paint.

Each piece is a one off and all have an element of texture ranging from subtle up to extremely heavy textures while all still taking on a minimalist approach.

Melbourne jeweller Marit Hamer hand crafts pendant necklaces from natural minerals and stones. Every pendant is chosen for its particular character so each piece is unique and the natural imperfection of each is highlighted. Each stone is partly wrapped in a thin metal sheet which will change over time when worn and touched to further personalise each pendant.

Co. Studio

Co. Studio is the brainchild of local Melbourne designer and artist Claire Osman. After months of researching & experimenting extensively into the properties of kelp, Co. Studio will be bringing their unique handmade homewares to the market. Made solely from dried seaweed & resin, this beautiful line of homewares are naturally moulded into shape.

The materials and method of her practice are both highly sustainable and unique, and with an interest to further the exploration of other seldom used materials, be sure to keep an eye out for Co. Studio in the future.
