|Fern Vallesi of She Seldom Blushes|
Our friends in Perth, or visitors to the windy city, have a craftacular event to look forward to on July 11 called Made on the Left. Now in its fourth year, and hosted at 140, an impressive-sounding space on the corner of William Street and Murray Street Mall, which has produced happy news stories such as this: "Inspired by vintage fashion from a young age Fern Vallesi began re-working preloved and broken jewellery components to create new pieces which she now sells under the label, She Seldom Blushes. Testing her designs at markets, including Made on the Left, she moved into wholesaling her jewellery at local boutiques and opened her own store in Atwell Arcade, Fremantle. With a retro and vintage aesthetic Fern also stocks a number of WA designers including current Made on the Left stall holder Mel P designs." For more good news: see the Made on the Left blog.
