Rock'n'Wrap prep for the BrisStyle Indie Twilight Market

Want to know what's going on behind the scenes at Rock'n'Wrap? With two weeks to go and counting El lets us in on a little sneak peek of her BrisStyle Indie Twilight Market preparations...

"Twilight markets?! How exciting! And so pretty – fairy lights, lanterns....oh good golly, I’ve got none of that. In fact, I’ve got no lighting organised at all! Better get my skates on.

Right, more sterling silver wire ordered. Colourful and unique cabochons all lined up....which ones to use first? Actually, I’ve got some beautiful Queensland Agate ready for the final polishing out the back on my lapidary machines. Shiny as glass, beautiful velvety reds. Maybe I should make some of those into wire-wrapped pendants first. And some gorgeous ocean-coloured malachite/chrysocolla. Got some hot pink druzy crystals here somewhere too... And earrings, there’re fabulous matching lampwork glass beads here somewhere.... oh there they are, plum, lavender, turquoise. I’ve got a lot to work with, and a lot of work to do! Oh, and the ever popular Ear Candy earrings, so simple and dainty. Perfect for making in front of the tellie. TV, what am I talking about, I’ve got a 14-month old, I don’t watch television. And Playschool doesn’t count, we’re too busy dancing and singing to get any jewellery made. Oh, great news. Nonna’s coming to stay for a week, so I can do some uninterrupted wire-wrapping. Huzzah! Absolutely unique and one-of-a-kind pendants, earrings and necklaces for everyone. Well, everyone who comes to the fantastic Twilight Markets, that is ;D See you there!"

You can check out all of El's finished products at the BrisStyle Indie Twilight Markets, King George Square, Brisbane City on Friday 30 April, 5-9pm.
