Occasionally I create a piece of jewellery that more than one person wants. I don’t usually like to make the same thing twice, but because I’ve had so many requests to remake this particular ring, I thought I would!

And a few more “endless journey” spinner rings.

I’ve contacted everyone who originally asked me to remake these rings so some of these will be reserved for those people, the rest will be available to purchase when I list them tonight.

I’ve also made two more “waxing and waning” rings that are a slightly different design to the original ring, and a one of kind ring with an amazing Botswana agate. I’ll have some photos of these new rings on Friday morning at 11am (Sydney time) which is around 9pm Thursday in the US, you may want to check your time zone.

Over the last three weeks Sydney city has been lit up as part of the vivid festival. It’s a festival of light, sculpture, music and ideas, it’s also about creativity and inspiration and included talks from creative thinkers from Australia and around the world.

Matt Stinchcomb, Etsy's European Director, spoke about handmade and creativity as part of the festival. We went along to meet him outside the Opera house and spent a few hours chatting about all things Etsy. It was great to meet Matt and talk about Handmade, Etsy, and the exciting things they have planned for the future. I felt reassured to know that the importance of supporting handmade and making our world a better place is what Etsy is still all about.
