wear a pendant close to your heart

Whilst going through my stock, preparing for tomorrow's I heart Market, I realised I have a lot of pendants. They come in many different shapes, sizes and glaze colours!

Here's some pics of some of the variety of pendants I make. All pendants are made from white stoneware clay fired to 1200 degrees and then hand-glazed. Each pendant comes on an adjustable cotton waxed cord, although this can be easily replaced with any other type of cord or chain you prefer.
A few people I know bought them for their cars to hang from the rear view mirror, great idea :)

Well, I'll be at the I heart Market tomorrow with these and all my other ranges of ceramic ware, so come and take a look.

crazy for colour

I've been making these little bowls for a while now and I really enjoy their simplicity and smallness. To me they are just the right size for storing bits and bobs in. I use mine for just about anything, i.e. for storing rechargeable batteries (so you always know where they are), for chucking in loose change or those single buttons that one finds at the bottom of your washing machine and, of course, for jewellery on your nightstand.

Well, I've glazed a whole new batch in fun festive colours, don't they look charming?
These little gems are tougher than they look, they are made in white stoneware, fired to 1200 degrees celcius and then glazed, so they are durable. The bonus is they are priced under R80 so they also make wonderfully affordable gifts.

So hopefully the I heart Market tomorrow is as buzzing as last time and that the weather cooperates (please rain, stay away until later in the day).

This has got to be one of my all time favoutrite I heart Market posters, so joyful! Don't forget the market madness this December, there's 3 markets on before Christmas. Please concider the I heart Market for your gifting needs. Hope to see you there <3 :)
