Incalesco by Erika Harris now at Bella Moon

As of this afternoon I am a proud stockist of the gorgeous hand crafted work by jewellery artist Erika Harris. Until today I'd only seen her work in photographs, and it lives up to my expectations. It's really stunning.

For a closer look at Erika's jewellery, drop by Bella Moon in funky Sydney Road, Brunswick and I'll be happy to show you her work.

Erika has kindly allowed me to use some of her photographs, which I do so below.

Incalesco Mokume Fire Opal ring by Erika Harris.

These few photographs are just a snippet of what is in my store - and they are already attracting loads of attention by passers-by!

Cheers

Open for Business!

It's happened! As of Sunday, 4 October, Bella Moon has been trading. My little shop is at:

Shop 2, 341 Sydney Road
Brunswick, Victoria, 3056
Australia

Telephone: +61-3-9380 9882

There is still so much to do and lots more stock to fill the space with, but as a starting point, the feedback and reaction from people walking by or coming in is really positive. It's very exciting.

Enough words, here are some photographs of Bella Moon, week one.


Looking from the back of the shop.
The counter top is hand made from rough oak boards that Tony and I put together in a herringbone pattern. We then bogged up the cracks and holes in the wood, before Tony planed, sanded and lacquered it. I think it's gorgeous.


Some stock and cabinets ... the glass cabinets are so hard to photograph and capture the contents. Very reflective.

Taken from the side window looking in.

Just another angle from back to front of the shop.

I haven't added any photos of the entire shopfront ... and probably won't until I have a sign up (that'll take a while, I'm guessing) and the front is painted. At the moment it's covered in graffiti, so I simply have to wait for the body corporate to organise the cleaning and painting of that.

Spread the word!
