StudioKY is for jewellery lovers.
We, Kay and Yvonne Pittelkow, design and produce modern art jewellery. What makes us different is that our jewelery is designed to be unique and one of the reasons we can be sure of that is that after we design it, we handcrafted most of the pieces - even our beads are usually hand rolled.
Colour and unique design are our specialty.
We also do a line in "Upcycled" jewellery which is a comtempory way of saying recycled or re-used where we take out-of-date jewelery and use the elements in modern designs. Substainability!
Lately we are diversifying and designing and making objects for the home. Collectible figurines are becoming a specialty of Kay's - echoes of sculpture! Customers with special interests are commissioning figures for their clubs. However, small trays, tea candle covers, napkin rings are also making an appearance - often in resin featuring image transference. Sometimes we go mad and design something totally different. Usually something that is useful but not always. Keep a look out if you like the unusual. Checking out "What's New" is the best place to find what we are working on.
Because we do all the design and manufacturing ourselves we can change fittings or sizes or colours. You just have to ask us at StudioKY.
Commissions form a significant part of Kay's sales. There is no obligation to buy a commissioned piece although we appreciate a quick decision. Making to a customer's brief is often challenging - it can take you out of your comfort zone but it can also produce a new and exciting direction.
You can see our pieces at one the following locations. We welcome the opportunity to find out what you, the customer, want from your jewellery.
Kay has just moved to Wangi Wangi on the Western side of Lake Macquarie. I have my first Farmers and Artisan markets at Toronto on Saturday 4th November. It is a regular monthly market which started only a few months ago and is on the first Saturday of the month . If it goes well, this will be my "home" market. I will also be attending The Toronto Festival of Light Markets to be held each Thursday evening (6:30 to 9:30) in December leading up to Christmas.. Hope you can join us!
Yvonne is also living in Wangi Wangi. She will join me at the markets. You are welcome to contact me by phone - I will keep this page up to date with market locations and dates.
My workspace is in Wangi Wangi NSW. You are welcome to contact me to arrange a private viewing. Or phone 0428062902. Particularly useful if you want to match a certain fabric or design or commission a piece although images can achieve the same result.
Note that I visit the European markets during part of June and July so viewings will not be possible during those months. In 2017 I will also attend the Edinburgh festival in the UK so my first market is likely to be the last Saturday in August.
TERRE SAUVAGE IN BELVES, FRANCE
Belvès is a very pretty medieval town in southwestern France. I always thingk of it as being in the Dordogne but recently it became part of a new commune, Pays-de- Belvès. The closest city is Bordeau.
A selection of my jewelry and home decor items reside in this lovely shop. For 2017 I have designed and made a special range for this shop to complement the Zimbawean handicrafts and art that, with the output of some local artists, dominate the shop's contents. Some of these items are shown in "Whats New" on this site.
Note that this shop opens for "the Season". You can contact them through there facebook page.
