Getting ready for the Manly markets

I've been madly getting stock ready for the Manly designers market on Saturday and Sunday. The markets are attached to the Manly food and wine festival so it should be lots of fun! My fingers have never hurt so much before from all the filing that I have been doing though (more than when I was learning the guitar even!), but everything is looking lovely - I had a demo run of the stall in my lounge room to make sure it was going to look ok. I'm sharing the stall with a good friend of mine, Tanya, who creates the most amazing gold jewellery - her label is Zefyr. Her jewellery practices are all eco friendly - she recycles discarded brass (which she then has gold plated) and vintage glass stones. It really is eco glam jewellery! I now have one of her rings (I usually only wear silver but am happy to convert to gold for her jewellery!) and will be purchasing some more on the weekend I'm sure - can't resist!!

This is one of Tanya's (Zefyr) rings (note the state of my hands - no finger nails to be seen - all filed off ac

Wow! Your stall is going to be amazing. Your jewellery looks fantastic. What a treat it will be to see your silver jewellery and Tanya's gold. I only wish I was in Sydney.
