Blue Wren Cottage

Blue Wren Cottage is situated in the Hunter Valley of NSW. Our garden is filled with the sounds and antics of delightful little blue wrens. The little blue wren above, is one of those I photographed. 

My name is Robyn, and I simply have a love for creativity.

My mother taught me from an early age the love of sewing and embroidery, and she taught me to be creative. We spent many memorable evenings sewing together and working on craft projects.

Since then I learnt the finer skills of embroidery at College, and now have an embroidery machine, enabling me to produce beautiful projects, which would have been difficult by hand, and now can incorporate lovely designs into patchwork and other lovely pieces for the home and family. 

I have also an interest in jewelry making. I enjoy working with pearls and gemstones, and have produced some really lovely necklaces, earrings and bracelets. I also enjoy porcelain painting, and have developed a style of miniatures.

I commenced my small cottage business, more than 10 years ago, and have participated in local craft markets.

I am now very pleased to be able to make pieces to treasure for you and your loved ones, which you can see here on my Hand-Made store.

Special Gifts for Special People.

Featured Seller :: Radge Design

Radge Design®
graphic design : art : jewellery : quirky eye-catching design

I'm Louise (aka Radge) mother to two little monsters who keep me on my toes. I am passionate about art, design and all things creative. I enjoy thinking outside the square and pushing the boundaries with my designs, I have a Diploma in Commercial Arts (Graphic Design).

Graphic Design : I love logo design, working on branding for small business and illustrating. I incorporate hand drawn elements into logos where possible to ensure they are truly unique and representative of your business.

Jewellery : Creating statement pieces of handmade silver jewellery to be worn, loved and shown off every day is what I love doing, ‘no two pieces are the same’ as all pieces are handmade by myself, all wire used is 100% recycled Sterling Silver. Designs can be based on the same idea but no two will be identical as the wire has a mind of its own. Polymer clay creations are all hand blended and rolled, in batches that are all limited editions so although similar each bead has its own character they vary slightly in size/shape.

Artwork : Drawing, painting and printing when I get the time is yet another way that I express myself, I love organic forms and an inspired by the works of the impressionists and surrealists although I feel I have my own style.

Favourite materials
I love working with sterling silver wire, it has a mind of its own and beautiful beads in my jewellery creations, drawing, painting and printing are my favorite art mediums with pencils, pastels and acrylics most commonly used.
