My 2013 graduating jewellery class is proud to invite you to the Whitehorse Jewellery Silent Auction, to be held at New Guernica on Wednesday the 5th of June.
I have designed and hand-crafted three new pieces especially for the event, which I believe are my strongest works to date. They will be exclusively available to bid on at the event.
Also available to bid on are pieces that have been kindly donated from a selection of talented local contemporary jewellers, as well as pieces hand-crafted by the other graduating students. With reserve prices starting from just $50, it is a fantastic opportunity to secure a piece of beautiful contemporary jewellery for an amazing price and support the local emerging art and design community.
All funds raised at the event will go towards our graduate exhibition in November.
Viewing and bidding starts at 6:00pm.
Winners announced from 7:30pm.
This was my first go at making outfit GIFs. They’re pretty fun but I wish the images didn’t lose so much quality. I’ve had this dress for over a year – an easy wearing long-sleeved jersey dress is a trans-seasonal staple in my opinion. The looseness lends itself to being dressed up with a belt and heels or down as pictured for a casual Friday afternoon.
I’m spending mine catching up with friends, but afterwards I’m heading into the city to see OM. It’s been a good 12 months for gigs – in the last year I’ve managed to see a bunch of great international acts including Radiohead, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Earth. Sadly I’ve missed out on seeing Tool and APC (again) and Opeth, hopefully they’ll all tour again in Australia soon.

Heading out tonight to two different events revolving around jewellery – one is a media preview for a soon-to-launch jewellery and accessories online store with a twist, the other is the NMIT Jewellery Silent Auction; a fundraising event for graduating jewellery class at NMIT’s end of year exhibition. My graduating class will be having our own silent auction for the same fundraising goal in about a month – so if you’re in Melbourne please keep an eye out as I’ll be posting details soon.
I was so excited to pair these tabi boots with my leather leggings, I’ve been envisioning this leather leg effect for months and am really excited to finally put it together.
For those asking about the tabi boots – they are quite comfortable although slightly strange to walk in at first, and if you’re buying from recent seasons they are true to (Italian) size. Just don’t forget to pop into Daiso because you’ll need some tabi-toed socks to wear them with! I had to buy the men’s size because my feet are so big.
After being bed-ridden for days with a nasty cold I had to get out of the house today and run some errands I’d planned to take care of days earlier. As Melbourne is wont, the weather seemed ambiguous. A little wind, sunny but not warm… I compromised with a skirt and ankle boots combination, plus the addition of my beautiful new coat so long on lay-by and now finally mine.
I’ve got a lot of jackets but for some reason the perfect black coat has always eluded me. When I first saw this one slung limply on it’s hanger I dismissed it – until I saw someone else try it on. In it’s right context it transformed; instantly I knew it was the one. With a slight asymmetry to challenge the extreme minimalism of the style, it’s large lapel and waist belt give it enough versatility to be worn in a variety of different fashions. I also love the cleanliness of the concealed buttons and of course, the super-soft 100% cashmere outer which will keep me elegantly warm all winter.
“The reason I don’t use many colors is that there is color in the world. I’m not thinking of my clothes in a white room. I’m thinking of them in the world, and there are enough colors out there. I don’t need to do colors in collections. I’m more worried about shape. Whenever I see a lot of color, it just seems ambiguous to me.” - Rick Owens on why he doesn’t use a lot of colour in his collections.
