Australia Week: Suze Loves Leaf & Feather! & Giveaway


I love Leaf & Feather. The designs are really funky and cheerful.


The owner of the shop, Lauren, makes necklaces and bracelets using a fantastic mix of beads.


I like her style and the color combinations she chooses are fantastic.


This jewelry will brighten up anyone's day.


Lauren loves the challenge of finding the perfect combinations.


The beads are amazing and I love the different shapes and textures.


I asked Lauren a few questions to find out more about her and her shop.

 What inspires you? 

Nature is probably what inspires me most. Everything about it, but especially its random beauty, the meandering forms and amazing colour combinations.


Where did you learn your craft?

I am mostly self-taught, although I have done various workshops.


How did your Etsy adventure start?

  My friend Susie Stubbs from FlowerPress was an early adopter of Etsy and encouraged me to try it. It took her a while to convince me but I completely love it.


What do you like most about Australia and/or Sydney?

  I lived in Melbourne for seven years before moving to Sydney in 2001 though I am originally from New Zealand. The two cities are very different, including their fashion and style. I think my style and inclination is more in tune with the more romantic rambling orientation of Melbourne so actually I am in the wrong city! What I love about Australia is the wide open spaces, I completely love a loosely strewn landscape with eucalypts (gum trees). It smells of freedom.


 Is there a certain thought/vision behind your jewellery? 

In the back of my mind I am trying to make beautiful jewels that add something to an outfit. What keeps me going however is coming up with new forms and colour combinations. I can almost inhale colour and they way they work together.


What are your plans for the future? 

I have been making resin rings that I am pleased with and have also developed some semi-precious stone and wood necklaces and bracelets that I will soon let escape into the world.


I think the shapes and the composition are great, every bead is exactly where it should be.


These necklaces will brighten up every outfit.


I think they're stunning.


Check out this fantastic Etsy shop.


Buy something that makes you happy.


Enjoy browsing...


And have fun shopping!
