Beth Millner

Needing to go to bed, but I have just finished a bunch of correction and we are in the closing scenes of Ocean's 12 on TV ... so a quick blog post is what is needed to round off a wonderful weekend where I got the opportunity dress up and chat with lots of old friends.

I came across this etsy shop and I love the stuff that Beth Millner is doing. Isn't the bee gorgeous!

When I buy jewelry it has to be hard wearing and it has to last more than a season of wearing. I like modern pieces that have a classic edge to them. Victoria Mason is an excellent example of a Melbourne artist doing what I would call timeless pieces. Her name is definitely on my Christmas List this year.

I spent far too long on Beth's blog tonight looking at her ideas and posts about her creative process. I love the way she shows you the different ideas and techniques that she has used in preparing her jewelry.

The Strawberry Lovers series is unlike anything I have seen elsewhere. I am not sure if something like this would suit me, but it is lovely anyway!

I done jewelry bead work in the past and enjoy putting pieces together, but I would love to learn a bit more about silver smithing and silver casting.

Another great Melbourne maker of hard-wearing silver jewellery is Katzinka. She made my wedding ring!
