Glebe Artisans Market

Glebe Artisans MarketOn Saturday the 18th June we are attending our very first Glebe Artisans Market.

This is an exciting new market held in the beautiful Dr H J Foley Rest Park only a few kilometres from the Sydney CBD organised by a non-profit community group dedicated to promoting the unique and beautiful products created by individual designers and artists.

We would love to see you there!

Custom Made Jewellery

Custom Made JewelleryWe love work together with our clients to create one of a kind custom jewellery, and this month we got to do just that!

Our most recent collaboration had us working with recycled copper wire which had been kept by a Canberra customer, Veronica, whose father worked for the State Electricity Commission in Victoria many years ago.

Custom Made Jewellery2We used the copper wire to make a new knot bangle and knot ring, sized specifically to fit. Veronica was very happy to be able to wear her father’s upcycled copper, which she says she won’t take off, to help with her arthritis.

If you have an idea for a custom creation, please don’t hesitate to contact us anytime or connect with us on Facebook.

Copper is the metal of love

Copper LoveAs one of the oldest metals used and cherished by humans since ancient times, copper has been known as the metal of healing and the metal of love.

We also love to stamp a heart in to our jewellery and have lots of heart shapes we use as tags on bangles and long hoop and beaded necklaces.

We are celebrating this with a new range of copper love knot rings and bangles and Copper Heart pendants. These are also available in industrial strength silver and gold plate.

Here are some of our new and old love inspired pieces.

Share the love!

Upcycled Copper & Coins

Upcycled Copper and coinsSome of the materials we use to create our jewels each week aren’t very glamorous – electrical wire, plumbing pipe and industrial copper tubes, as well as old coins are often supplied to V&M, which is then turned in to jewellery. There is no waste in the V&M workshop!

This tub of copper has come out of plumbing water systems and will be transformed into rings, bangles and cuffs!

Do you have any materials that we could upcycle into something unique? These are some of the beautiful jewels that we have made…
