Ceramic lace + organic skirts


I've just received some yummy crafty post :) I'm a hopeless case when it comes to resisting a beautiful brooch. These lovelies are the latest creations of talented ceramicist Kim Wallace here in Brisbane. Had to have them and how could I possibly choose between them? Kim is also the driving force behind the creative e-shop Udessi... have a stroll around and see all the fabulous goodies she has on offer.


I had coffee with the lovely Mady yesterday and she hand-delivered one of her divine pieces... I'm totally in love with this skirt :) Mady creates these pieces from organic cottons and hemp which she dyes herself. You can see her shop here and she has two fabulous blogs, Abundance and Mady Dooijes, as well as a gorgeous Tumblr site.

I totally understand that you couldn't choose.
I love it when different mediums meld into each other.
Enjoy wearing them

Such elegant brooches. Thanks for sharing K.

Lady, with such impeccable taste, it would be ridiculous to resist.

Those brooches are just gorgeous. I'll bet they feel great when you run your fingers over them. We made textured metal like this at uni, by popping a piece of lace between two plates of annealed silver and rolling it through the rolling mill.

Love the skirt too. You will look funky indeed in that skirt and those brooches Kylie. Very arty. :)
