Introducing... Kate Campbell Designs

We'd like to introduce the lovely Kate from Kate Campbell Designs!
Kate is a Melbourne based jeweller with a focus on 'reframing the definition of precious'.

"I love taking everyday things and framing them in silver to redefine them in the viewers eyes, from old copper pipe to wood and the inner workings of watches. At the moment I am working on framing knitting/crochet."
Kate did the NMIT Advanced Diploma in Jewellery in 1999/2000 and in the intervening 12 years practised privately, making jewellery for herself and friends. Recently launched through the 'Make Craft Your Business Course' run by the Thornbury Women's Neighbourhood House, Kate Campbell Designs is her first venture into the retail world with her work. 
“I am thoroughly enjoying it, and feel so supported by the women that I met doing the course and keep meeting at markets like Suitcase Rummage. It is a great community and I feel very lucky to be part of it!”

You can find Kate on facebook or at her website:

Introducing...Made by Mzungu

The lovely Angela of MADE BY A MZUNGU

Made by a Mzungu creates beautiful resin-covered jewellery pieces - pendants, brooches, earrings, rings, cufflinks, mirror compacts, fridge magnets and framed pieces using postage stamps, photos, vintage wallpaper and fabric.

I've been a "craft dabbler" for a good part of my life and have a great love of colour that is found in nature and everyday life items.  My other great love is travelling and some of my resin jewellery pieces have been influenced by my travels and my passion for Africa.  My creations are unique and no two pieces are exactly the same.  I lay different colour palettes over my photographic pieces and there is no limit to the stamps, wallpaper and fabric that I can use.

I love the whole process of creating my pieces, from choosing the photo, stamp or wallpaper, pouring the resin and then putting the final finishing touch to each individual and unique piece.  I love selling my creations at markets and interacting with my fellow stallholder "creatives" and people coming to the markets.
