The Old Bus Depot markets is hosting a Green Savvy Sunday this Sunday (15th Sept ). After missing a few of Canberra's market, I will be participating in Canberra's first interactive market which brings together products and community groups focused on domestic green sustainable.
If you have not know already, we use recycled sterling silver for our handmade jewellery.
I purchase the raw material ( sterling silver ) from A&E metal merchants in Sydney.
"We buy scrap metals from jewellers and hobbyists or from various industrial users of precious metals. This we have refined back to pure silver.
In addition we purchase metal from local refiners who specialise in supplying us with only recycled material,
All the copper we use for alloying is recycled and is the highest grade available, it comes from recycled copper wire, mainly electrical cabling that would otherwise go into landfill" ( A&E Metal Merchants )
Canberra, here i come......

My first Dreamers Market was a real dream comes true. The under cover venue is at the Riverside Theatres courtyard. It creates a unique, bright and intimate village atmosphere for both the makers and shoppers.
I had a fantastic day sharing my jewellery making experience with the locals and customers as far as from Perth. I also made some new friends and sharing market tips.......
I bought this beautiful handmade WeePots from talented Jo. The pot is hand built from a slad of clay stamped with patterns. I have been looking for something like this for a while and Cactus is just my kind of plant!
So a big thank you to the Dreamers team as well as the customer for coming to the market on Saturday.
You are a classy bunch and supporting your local and Australian handmade.
The next market will be in October 19th (Saturday ), needless to say i will bring some of my new designs and continue on coversation were we left off.
Save the date and bring your friends.......
