finally something for the boys...

About a year ago a male friend asked me to make some "man badges" so that boys could wear my brooches too. I never ended up making man badges but it did make me realise that sometimes us crafty girls make so many cute things for other girls to wear and we occasionally forget to make things for boys.  
So I have decided to start making cufflinks!
I have made two types of cufflinks, one guitar themed and one piano themed.
The guitar pick themed ones have a purple Jim Dunlop guitar pick fixed to them. (Unfortunately they look like blue in these photos but they are really purple..i promise!). These guitar picks are thicker and smaller than most guitar picks so they will not bend when you are wearing them. The grand piano cufflinks have a cute black piano cab fixed to them.

Hmmm... i might be back with some more musical cufflinks in the coming weeks ( i just cant think of any more right now!).

Please let me know what you think of these xx

(oops... and i almost forgot to say, you will be able to find these in my etsy and made it shops today.. and hopefully some other shops soon too. And of course, I will have a few at my stall at the Northcote Town Hall Winter Artisans Market this coming Saturday).

Leeloo in Frankie...

Do you have the current issue of Frankie? I think it came out yesterday. If you do, have a look at the Leeloo ad on page 55 ... you might see something strangely familiar (mmm... there is a small photo of my little brooches yay!)

Friday-itis & new things for the market tomorrow...

oh yeeeh I think I have Friday-itis. My head hurts a wee bit (maybe because I went out last night and had to be up for an 8am meeting this morning, maybe because winter in Melbourne = gluhwwein at pubs).
But the weekend is nearly here and I will be at the Northcote Town Hall Winter Artisans Market again tomorrow (Saturday).
Here are a few of the new things I made this week which I will be selling at the market tomorrow xxoo
