The raindrops will not wet her, and they will not come off…

Raindrops necklace by Naoko Inuzuka

As a kid one of my favourite stories was A Necklace of Raindrops by Joan Aiken, and I wanted the eponymous necklace with a freakishly intense thing-lust that neatly foreshadowed  my current-day love of accessories.

Apparently good things come to those who wait, and to those who shop handmade – thanks to Naoko Inuzuka, a very talented gold- & silversmithing student I found at the January Craft Hatch Market, a raindrops-esque necklace is now mine. This piece came about as part of Naoko’s explorations of metal, and, like all her work, was created with the idea of ‘purity’ in mind. It’s all about the silver itself, its texture in an organic form. In natural light the silver is almost pearlescent, it’s quite stunning.

Naoko won’t be at the next Craft Hatch as she’s busy working and studying (hello, start of semester – I know that feeling), but she hopes to be selling through select outlets next year and will reappear at markets a la Craft Hatch when she is able.

: Craft Victoria’s Craft Hatch Market :
Craft Hatch is a monthly gathering of emerging creatives selling their wares organised and curated by Craft Victoria, held one Saturday a month at the City Library  (253 Flinders Lane, Melbourne) from 11.00am – 4.00pm.

The next Craft Hatch dates are Saturdays  14 March and 4 April.

      Hi Katherine,

      I haven’t seen the magazine, so I’m not sure if it’s Craft Hatch they’re talking about… but you can find more info and Craft Hatch dates from the link in the post – looks like there was one last Saturday (9th) and the next one’s not until June. Sorry!

      If it’s some other market this Saturday, let us know if it’s any good!
