ORGANS

I CARRY YOUR HEART IN MY HEART by Corky.

This sterling silver anatomical heart was carved for us from our original design.

Each heart comes on an 80cm Italian sterling silver fine curb chain.



The clasp on the locket will closes firmly and will hold tiny treats or mementoes safely. 

A favourite customer recently told me she wore this necklace while travelling across America, coast to coast - L.A. to Chicago.

She suffers from claustrophobia and was able to carry some sedatives in her heart locket. She managed to fit 5 xanaxes into it's little cavity - proving that Corky jewellery can be functional as well as fun to wear.

Limited stock- only two left.
$170 AUD

FOOD



I have thought about this quite deeply - if I ever have kids, I will call my daughter  Boadicea and my son Julian. They seem like butch names. 

I think I would be one of those dads that doesn't let his kids have processed sugar. 

Maybe I'd let my kids have a donut to share if it was this size.


Cute handmade donut necklace. Made in America with an Italian sterling silver chain $40AUD. Available from Corky Saint Clair.





If little Boadicea and Julian behave themselves I might treat them to some nigiri sushi. Raw Salmon is full of free radical eradicating antioxidants. Mmmmmmmmmm, what a special gluten free treat.
Nigiri sushi studs with surgical steel backings $30AUD
Nigiri sushi platter necklace $45AUD

Mini Hamburger necklace $40AUD

CABINETS

Anyone who has ever worked at Corky Saint Clair knows that I talk about glass cabinets every single day.

The saddest single thing about The Accident was that my oversized 1950s wooden jewellery cabinet that the lovely people at Koodaks sold to me got destroyed.
It weighed a million kilos and was over 2.5m long. I got my two largest male friends Matt and Callum to help me carry it.

Somehow we got the cabinet down the elevator in the Capitol Building and then moving that cabinet became the furniture moving equivalent of the Stations of the Cross - staggering, stopping and tragically posing through the city - through the lobby, down Swanston Street, down Flinders Street and finally and most torturously down the stairs to the subway where Corky Shop is located.

It was so ludicrously large it caused a rupture in the public space as we carried it through the city. People felt compelled to comment.
-that's a big cabinet
-yeh no shit

It was really hard going. We felt physically and mentally violated afterwards - like we had pushed ourselves a bit too far. I think being that strung out was actually an intensely bonding experience; I will always remember how much Matt and Callum helped me. You guys know how much I love you.

Cabinet Two
This is the cabinet I got to replace the first one. It weighed as much as the first as it was made out of cast iron.

This time I had Elwyn and a Man with a Van to move it. Once again it was almost too hard. I feel like Elwyn and I nearly died as we struggled to carry it down the stairs. At one point I panicked a little and thought I couldn't do it. At another point I thought

'if the cabinet moves even a little it'll snap my head off'


Cabinet lesson
I guess the lesson here is get more men to help moving Very Large Objects

New cabinets
I guess the carthartic fantasy I held for the entire year after the shop was destroyed by Yarra Trams and their reckless engineering was the idea that I could recreate the shop in some new and interesting manner. I discovered that people like vertical cabinets - so I am slowly gathering a collection of vertical jewellery cabinets and laying them out in a charming maze like pattern.
