Off to Market

Weather permitting, I am holding a stall at the next Braidwood markets, Saturday 28th April. Its an outdoor market, the day is looking chilly but no rain, fingers crossed. As mentioned in my earlier post, I have become obsessed with making stamp jewellery.

I have chosen to use only pre-decimal and vintage Japanese stamps. They are secured with a special glaze under a glass tile, and placed either inside a pendant blank or glazed and added to a bail. I am waiting on some more chains which hopefully will arrive during the week, and I will be right to go. I am also taking along my cards and other jewellery pieces. Click for a closer look.

Colourful ribbon necklaces
Mix of Japanese and Australian stamps in silver pendants...waiting for chains
Fitting for Anzac Day
Long glass tiles with silver plated cute is this Japanese stamp??
The small blue one on the end is a stamp from India. Of course India is keeping this one and blue is her favourite colour too.
This one is a keeper. I collect Kookaburra paraphernalia :)
I am hoping that they do well. They will be price at $20.00 per necklace and $10.00 per ring.  I have purchased so many stamps to make more, but will see how these go first.

Enjoy your week, Tam x

Wow great idea, there lovely, hope you've checked for rare ones. We stuck a stamp on a parcel last week we'd had for ages then found out it was worth 4 times the value :(
fingers crossed for you

Good luck with your sale.
