JESSIE STREET NATIONAL WOMEN'S LIBRARY PRIZE

 The 2016 prize for the Jessie Street annual fundraiser was this brooch made by me!

The inspiration was the gum leaf, an Australian native plant. Combining the suffragette colours of white, green and purple. The brooch is made from Australian sterling silver and I have the vein patterns of the eucalyptus leaf of the imprinted on the surface of the silver. Subtle and elegant.

Here is what the winner had to say about her prize.

Dear Connie

I was the lucky recipient of the beautiful and symbolic brooch you made for the Jessie Street raffle, drawn at the lunch yesterday. Thank you for your support of a cause I care about, and for making such a thoughtful contribution. I visit the inner west regularly, and will come and visit your shop sometime when I can, and thank you personally.

RING SIZE GUIDE

FIND YOUR RING SIZE

You can easily find you ring size by measuring the inside diameter of an existing ring.

                       
1. Measure the inner diameter in millimeters.
   2. Write this measurement down.
    3. Add this measurement into your shopping cart notes at checkout.
The most accurate way is for me to measure you, however this is the best approx way to find your size at home.
If you do not have a ring that fits or feel confident to measure yourself, I recommend that you swing by a jeweller or jewellery store and have your finger measured to get the accurate size.
