So I took part in the Fashion show, first of its kind, organised by lovely ladies for Russian speaking handmakers here in Melbourne. Since having 2 under 2 girls I had no time to make enough new toys or sculptures to show to the guest, so I've decided to try something new for myself and make a few brooches instead. And because next year is a year of Rooster by Chinese Zodiac I've translated some of the traditional russian painting handcraft techniques onto woolen rooster brooches.
Unfortunately it ended up hard to take close up photos of the brooches on my models, so you can find the photos in the Brooches Gallery I've taken myself plus a photo of my gorgeous friend Irina who was wearing my Blue Sirin brooch, which is one of a few from the new collection of Mythology Birds Brooches.
I hope you like them!
About the night itself. I havent had so much fun for a long time, well, I've had 2 babies in a row, so it kind of justifies it. I love my kids but sometimes it is so nice for mummy to get out and spend time with like minded people aka handmakers and creative crowd. We had so many lovely ladies with great talent and passion to what they do. More info about the event can be found here and I will try to post more photos later as there are bizzilions of them in total. Here are just some:
