Melbourne’s long affinity with artisan jewellers continues this September at the Sisters’ Market.

Melbourne has long had an affinity with jewellers born off the back of the well-to-do with links back to England and gold diggers. From the early 1800s gold was the magnet that drew in thousands of pioneers and adventurers who readily spent on gold watches and chains for themselves and presents for their women. Now day’s women are more than capable of buying their own jewellery and on Saturday September 12, they can do exactly that at the Sisters’ Market.

Melbourne is still a town full of artisans devoted to hand making unique pieces of jewellery; they are rich in craftsmanship and have a deep passion for design. This September a large number of jewellers have signed-up to the next Sisters’ Market to be held at the Brunswick Town Hall. The Sisters’ Market has been proudly supporting emerging independent designers since 2008.

Siblings, Marianna Gentilin and Roberta Parisi have helped launch the careers of countless local artisans, to the benefit of discerning Melbourne shoppers keen to snare original goods in a setting that would not be out of place in London, New York, or Paris.

Five of the best jewellers to sign-up for the September 12 Sisters’ Market include;

Té Claire is a newcomer to the Market. Té is a Brunswick-based artist, currently studying at RMIT, who creates handmade ceramic pieces of art. Focusing on the materials and the manual labour, her work takes a nostalgic look at the natural world and everyday objects, reinvented by clay – her clay brooches are uniquely distinct http://teclaire.com

Erin.K is a Ringwood-based jewellery maker who hand makes unique and interesting jewellery. Erin can remodel unwanted gold jewellery into something new and exciting or you can purchase from her sterling silver jewellery featuring leaf printed designs and stamped designs.
