If you like your jewellery to remind you of lollies and sugary goodness, then check out this fun range from Brisbane jeweller and Bondville reader, Nicole from Hot Toffee. After living in Japan for six years, where she learned how to make Togei (pottery), Shodou (Japanese calligraphy), Ikebana (flower arranging) and kiln-fired glass accessories, Nicole returned to Australia and launched her first range.
Inspired by all things sweet, Japanese art and design and Australian beaches, Hot Toffee jewellery are mini pieces of wearable art. To tempt you even more, Nicole's pieces have enticing names like orange and lime drops, mint and strawberry sorbet, and burnt toffee apple. The current range includes earrings, pendants, hair pins, pocket mirrors, magnets, badges, cards and totally delicious cufflinks. (I'm a huge fan of cool cufflinks).
You can find Hot Toffee jewellery from Nicole directly, on Etsy, as well as stockists across Australia and markets around Brisbane. Find out more about Hot Toffee and upcoming markets on the blog Bits of Toffee.
