CRYSTAL

There are few things as stunning as a Hermiker Diamond. They are uncut double terminated quartz points that come out of the ground with natural faceting. 

They have an incredible clarity to which Native Americans and others in the New Age movement have ascribed mystical powers.

We have been working on this Handmade Triforce Hermiker Diamond Pendant project for months now and the pendant is now complete. The triangular bail we designed allows the stone to move freely.

Hermiker Diamonds are very hard which make them perfect for jewellery.

MOONSTONE

It's a lot fun taking photos of moonstone. Light shifts and shimmers through out these iridescent stones. In direct sunlight if you tilt the pendant, the moonstone can appear to be yellow, pink or blue.

Our moonstone and sterling silver pendant measures 25mm high x 16mm wide. We have presented this gemstone on a 50cm Italian sterling silver fine curb chain.

AQUAMARINE

Aquamarine has long been seen as a desirable and beautiful gemstone, and was a particular favourite of the Ancient Egyptians and Sumerians. They saw it as a symbol for everlasting happiness and youth.

This classic stone has been presented on a contemporary bar pendant and the gems are roughly faceted for an edgy and unique look.

Check it out here.

AXE

Since Neolithic times elaborate axe jewellery has had religious significance and served as an index to the exalted status of their owner. 

With this in mind I have created a very prestigious yet super cute solid gold woodsman's axe pendant.

BIRDCAGE



This little 3D sterling silver birdcage contains a tiny moving bird. We have presented it on an 80cm Italian Sterling silver fine curb chain.

As well being the perfect size and shape for a pendant, this birdcage makes a pretty sound when shaken.

DINOSAUR




Hi Everybody. How well do you know your dinosaurs?

We are having a Dinosaur pendant giveaway. Just name any of the dinosaurs featured and you can win that pendant.
To win private message us on our Facebook page with the name of the dinosaur you want.
https://www.facebook.com/corkysaintclairmelbourne
or click here

Our first dinosaur is a large, heavily built, herbivorous quadruped. It had a distinctive and unusual posture, with a heavily rounded back, short forelimbs, head held low to the ground and a stiffened tail held high in the air. Its array of plates and spikes has been the subject of much speculation. The spikes were most likely used for defense, while the plates have also been proposed as a defensive mechanism, as well as having display and thermoregulatory functions.

There is startling new evidence to show that this dinosaur hunted live animals and didn't just scavenge.

Researchers found a part of this dinosaur's tooth wedged between two tailbones of a duckbill dinosaur unearthed in northwestern South Dakota. The tooth was partially enclosed by regrown bone, indicating the smaller duckbill had escaped from the predator dinosaur and lived for months or years afterward.

Phew.

What is the name of this carnivorous dinosaur?

We affectionately call this guy 'spazzy running dinosaur' because it looks like he's gonna fall over. What is his actual name?

JON KLASSEN

Jon Klassen is a Canadian writer and illustrator of children's books and an animator. He won the 2013 Caldecott Award for illustration, recognising This Is Not My Hat, which he also wrote.
He is also well known for his 2011 picture book "I Want My Hat Back."


Klassen was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in 1981 and grew up in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. He studied animation at Sheridan College, graduated in 2005, and moved to Los Angeles
In 2006, he made an animated short with Dan Rodriques, An Eye for Annai. He worked on the animation for Kung Fu Panda and Coraline 









We have a range of Jon Klassen greeting cards at the shop. I think we are the only store in Australia to be currently carrying his range.

Jon Klassen cards
available from Corky Saint Clair $6AUD each.

PREHNITE


This rough faceted moonstone drop subtly shifts from opaque to clear. It measures 29mm high x 20mm wide so it has some heft to it, which I always think makes for a nice pendant.

Available from Corky Saint Clair - faceted moonstone and sterling silver pendant, presented on a 50cm Italian sterling silver chain. $80AUD. I have one of these beauties at the shop.

BASTILLE

What are you doing to celebrate Bastille Day 2013? Here are some ideas for you to make it a special day.

Why not make a French themed dessert?



I made this  dessert for my BFF using the couleurs of the French flag: Blue, White and Red.

The three colours represent the three elements of the revolutionary motto, Liberté (freedom: blueberries), Egalité (equality: creme fraiche), Fraternité (brotherhood: red raspberries).

French Kiss someone.



 photo tumblr_mpsezyP30B1reste7o1_500.gif





















Did you know In France, French Kissing is referred to as baiser amoureux ("lover's kiss") or baiser avec la langue ("kiss with the tongue")? Here's how to do it.


Listen to emo-pop band BASTILLE

Ask the French Monkey some very important questions...
The French Monkey can make most of your decisions for you.

Spin his chunky sterling silver disc and he will tell you with 100% accuracy what you should do.

On this grave occasion, Bastille Day 2013, perhaps it is time to step up and ask some of the bigger questions.

Am I really free?
Does the Universe have a larger purpose for moi?
Should I storm the Bastille?










To this question the French Monkey answers "OUI".

To this question the French Monkey answers "NON."

HEART




I really love wearing our Sterling Silver Anatomical Heart Pendant. It is expertly crafted to open and close and stay closed so whatever I am carrying in there stays safe.

This photo shows the interior of the heart locket as well as the hallmarking on the aorta.

RABBIT

Some winter mornings are so bleak it feels like you can't find the strength to get out of bed. How much easier would it be to face these mornings if you had a cute, warm rabbit companion by your side?

This bone china rabbit has just arrived at the shop.
It has a built in LED light. (These LED lights last forever or at least a very long time by the way. The light fixture is also replaceable.)

They are a good size for your bedside table to cheer you up during these cold winter months.

Available from Corky Saint Clair - only $65AUD.

Dimensions: 18cm high

To celebrate this motif of modernity we have created a stunningly detailed 3D sterling silver mini milkcrate.
