handmade market

I am looking forward to returning to Handmade Canberra at the National Convention Centre next Saturday 17th December between 10:00am and 4:00pm.

I've been busy making lots of earrings and pendants.  Some are brand new, some are old favourites, and some are updated designs.

This is a variation on my popular double-disc hoops.  These earrings sit beautifully, and their sharp angles evoke a more industrial feel than the gently curved original.

But I haven't totally embraced sharp angles and straight lines.  These earrings are a new incarnation of my "wonky" style.

I hope to see you on Saturday!

upcoming events

Archaeology has been keeping me very busy over the past few months, and I haven't had nearly enough time to indulge in making jewellery.  So unfortunately I won't be at this weekend's Handmade Market, but I will be at the following one on December 17th.

In the meantime, you can still find me at the Portrait Gallery Store and at Made By Others in Moss Vale, and I'll be at the very funky UnderCurrent Design Market at the National Portrait Gallery on November 25th and 26th.

Hope to see you there!

handmade this weekend

If you're in Canberra over the long weekend, come and see me at the Handmade Market!

The market is on Saturday June 11th at the National Convention Centre, from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

I've been very busy working on some new designs, and making some old favourites in exciting new colours.

My favourite new pieces are my "onion" earrings.

Promise they don't smell bad.

stuart goes to moss vale

A selection of Stuart the Cat Designs jewellery is now available at the delightful Made by Others store in Moss Vale.

The store is featured in the March edition of Country Style magazine.  Here's a sneak peek.

If you're travelling through the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, drop in and check out their range of beautiful things.

They also serve cake.  What more could you want?

friday in colour

Today I finished a new collection of my fruit drop earrings.

Sitting out in the autumn sun I got carried away with colours and patterns, so the results aren't very fruit-like at all.  I can't think of a better name though.

Pictures of my current work are now sorted into separate galleries.  Just click on the tabs in the bar at the top of this page.

new collection

Stuart the Cat Designs' new collection will be available at the next Handmade Market in Canberra.

The new range is inspired by ancient cultures, modern colours and bold shapes.

Here is a sample of my current work.  I hope to see you at the market!
