Meet Anne Dundas of Sydney, Australia and Etsy, Too!
Meet: Anne Dundas of Anne Dundas, Handcrafted Jewellery and Lampwork Beads
Anne is my lampwork buddy from Etsy Glass Artists Street Team. She's from Sydney, Australia, which means she must talk really cool.
Anne says that color is the major influence on her style. She added, "how the same colour can look completely different when against other colours. I also love swirls, there's just something about them that I love."
" Well with my jewellery, I'm very fussy with my finishing, making sure it's all neat, the coils on my loops are all tight, etc. I really want people to notice that I take care in what I do, that I put alot of love into each of my pieces," she continued.
I've included two photos of pieces from her etsy shop. I love them both and they show a little of her great versatility.
The pendant drop of this necklace uses a beautiful mix of gemstones, from ocean jasper, nephrite jade and green aventurine; to Czech fire polish beads, Swarovski crystals and Bali sterling silver. The necklace section is a simple cord, which does not make this piece overpowering, but suits it perfectly, also making it comfortable to wear.
Cherry Charms, which are the perfect size to use as really cute charms on a charm bracelet.
Size, hole to hole: 7-8mm
Size, side to side: 10-11mm
