My range of personalised pieces started with a request from a customer to personalise a ring dish as an engagement gift. A white heart with a doily imprint and the newly engaged couples initials engraved into the unfired porcelain. Here is that very first engraved piece which is still one of my most popular designs.
My range of personalised pieces has been steadily growing since then and I now have quite an array to choose from. They are by far the most popular product across my range and I can certainly understand why. When you give a gift that has been customised and has such a unique personal touch, you are giving something that will likely stay with the recipient for many years to come, and in many cases, will be handed down to become a family heirloom. I’m honoured to say my ring dishes have carried many rings down the aisle then go on to be a precious reminder of a very special day.
To see my range of personalised pieces that are made to order, have a browse through my Madeit or Etsy stores. If you have something in mind, I’m more than happy to work with you to bring your idea to life so you can give a gift to be remembered or maybe something to mark a special occasion of your own.
Here are some of the custom made pieces that have come to life after special requests.
I’m sorry my poor little neglected blog. With everything that comes with running my little business, you seem to come in last behind the seemingly endless… Facebook, Madeit, Etsy, Instagram, Newsletter, not to mention the many orders flooding in for Christmas decorations and other gifts at this time of year. Put on top of that my totally unrealistic need to produce something new and different at least once a fortnight and … Where was I…Ohh look, new gold foil decals on Etsy, now how could I use those…See what I mean!
I’ll keep this one short, well short on words and big on pictures, because that’s what we all like to see right, pictures of pretty things! To say the least I am busy. My order board, which is a big whiteboard hanging on my studio wall is full and has bit of paper stuck to the bottom with sticky tape and scribbled orders. I seem to wipe one off and add two more. But I do love this time of year and the craziness it brings.
And now for the pretty things. Here are some of the pieces I’ve been working on lately:
I’ve been so busy lately I don’t know where to start!
I was so excited to be contacted by The Herald Sun Home Magazine who wanted to do a feature article on me and my work. What an honour! This magazine is seen by thousands across the Melbourne area and my sales rocketed following the release. Here is the article:
I’m also very excited to be making a large selection of my bowls, ring dishes and rectangle dish sets for a new shop opening in South Australia soon. The shop will be stocking an amazing array of handmade products from around the world. I feel very privileged to be among such amazing artists. Here are a few things making their way to their new home this very minute.
And of course, even among all this craziness I always have a new idea in development. After a special request from a customer, I was finally prompted into trying a platter, which has been on my list of things to do for some time. After showing the customer the design, she went with lime green and my very first platter is now at home with it’s new owner. I’ve got another one drying right now and a larger design also in production.
I’m always adding new stock to my online stores, so drop by often to see what’s new.
