New Stock Just Arrived

This amazing beaded pelican, which we have named Percy is huge! This is my favourite piece from the collection and I can't wait to put him on show in my new home! I'm sure he will be an admired piece in your home too! He even has a blue beaded fish in his mouth!

These intricately beaded seahorses were dancing in the sunlight.

These our our new exotic embroidered handbags. They are so unqiue and you are sure to get many comments carrying these brightly coloured handbags. We love them so much... Faith has the pink one and I have the blue one!

We are so excited about these stunning handmade beaded creatures. Here is just part of the collection shot on Mornington's beach. I love this shot because of the seagull in the background..... I'm sure he is admiring his new friends!

This is Faith's favourite little creature-the sweet hummingbird. They come in a range of colours and what a beautiful gift they would make for someone special.

Today we had our new stock photograhed on Mornington's pier and beach. The conditons were perfect......I was told it was a photograhers dream for these lighting conditions!

All new stock will be in our shop shortly, so keep watching our website. http://www.islandcollections.com.au/

Viva la Mexico

These stunning photos are in the current March issue of Australian Vogue. I am completely obsessed with this issue. The photo shoot took place in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and aren't the images stunning! I'm also totally adoring the model Alina Baikova. These styled clothes with their bold colours and detailed prints give me such great inspiration. I wish was a little braver to combine more colours and styles! I did however buy a bright coral lipstick as a start.....well when I first put in on and flashed my smile to my hubby.. he frowned slightly and said "Whoo those lips look like a beacon of orange".
Hmmm... Viva la Orange Beacon I say!

Turquoise Bedroom

I know its more turquoise...but we just love this colour so much. The side chandelier lights, mirrored side tables and turquoise bedhead makes this bedroom very luxurious.

Sweet dreams tonight.
