An old friend of mine Clara Emily McKay has recently started her own knitted jewellery brand called R&t, or Rough & Tumble. Her great knitting skills produce amazing neck pieces that are not just pretty to look at, but will double as a warm scarf through the winter times! I believe my hands would cramp up like an elderly ladies if I tried to attempt to make knitted jewels, so GO CLARA for doing it so well and maintaining straight fingers!
If you would like to purchase her wears, you can do so from her online store :: here! And you should! I should also mention that the photographs above are also by Clara. Multi skilled lady!
Model :: Anna Fagan, lovely lady.

I am very excited to say that we have finally found a great jeweler to design my engagement ring! All these beautiful pieces are hand crafted by a nice young man named Zac, of Zachary Frankel Jewellery. I found him via Finders Keepers a month or so ago, and fell head over heels in love with the Faceted Rings (first image) he makes.
Joe and I met with him at his (literally) old school studio in Southbank last weekend and threw some ideas at each other. The final product that he is designing for us is AMAZING. I am so so happy. Made up of white gold and rose gold, it is a delicate yet quirky take on the classic engagement ring. I am also hoping that he will design our wedding bands a little closer to the date. I cannot contain my excitement of finding an incredible emerging Melbourne artist to design the one piece of jewellery that will be precious to me for years to come. Gosh. That was a bit soppy. Soz.
If you would like any of his jewellery you can find it at Glitzern or contact him directly through his blog. Yay for Zac!

So. I have been super busy and haven't blogged in ages. And I haven't had the time to find anything amazing to blog about. But this IS amazing, even if it is not a new found glory to me, it MIGHT be to YOU. The above are taken from a post by my mum Pip Lincolne, written after a visit to well known Melbourne artist Ghostpatrols gallery show. He is a nice boy that Ghostpatrol. And so is his partner in crime Miso. You can find both of their works on Ghostpatrols website.
Miso has a current show running at No Vacancy gallery space in the CBD. It is only on for two weeks (last day is 17th April) so you should definitely go check it out! The following week (21st April-8th May) at the same gallery, another great artist named Cat-Rabbit has her exhibition going on, it's all happening at No Vacancy! So go look! Have fun! Buy their stuff! Support Melbourne Art!
