“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck”
Emma Goldman 1869 -1940
Hobart designers Sandra Alcorn & Amanda Sheen celebrate spring, friendship and its connection to the garden at Salamanca pop up shop from 22nd September – 5th October.
Designer Sandra Alcorn’s garden inspires her miniature flower couture and under the petal & pins label she designs and produces a range of greeting cards and art prints featuring these ephemeral dresses. For spring 2016 petal & pins launch their Garden Party Collection and new print range Atelier Pétale featuring floral millinery.
Jewellery designer Amanda Sheen brings her hallmark style of organic shapes and playfulness to design a range of jewellery, objects and accessories using silver, gold and mixed media from classic pieces to statement collars that will add an air of haute couture to the simplest little black dress.
Sandra & Amanda often spend time together in the garden – they celebrate summer days with a gin & tonic, autumn with fruit bottling sessions, their birthdays together in winter and spring with flower adorned teacakes.
No matter what the season there is endless conversation and most likely champagne! From all this sprung the idea of the shared pop up and they invite you to come and see their work.
