Glass with Class

Whilst I have put this under “Best Kept Secrets – Darwin”, I was a little unsure.

There are elements of this store that makes me cringe.  You know, borderline tacky.

Although, I have bought lovely glass birds from the Czech Republic for $36 and they are beautiful.  They make some lovely glass handbags in many different sizes, although I could not bring myself to buy one.  What do you do with them, unless you like to collect dust!

I have a girlfriend who loves the miniature shoes that they sell.  They also have glass jewellery and from time to time they have some really beautiful pieces.  I guess the shop is a bit of a mish mash of styles, but then it probably caters for everyone.

Worth a look, but tread with caution.  Some of the colour choices are interesting.

Miranda it would seem that you have not been into my shop. If you had you would know that it is a fully working stained glass studio that has many many handmade items for sale. All of the jewellery is made by local artists as is all of the stained glass work. I have items sourced from overseas, Poland, Germany, New Zealand to name but a few. To call any of it borderline tacky simply shows your lack of taste. Some of the comments we get are “Like being in Murano again” , “the most beautiful shop in Australia” , “when are you opening in my city?”. I think you need to revisit and rewrite girl!

Thanks for your comment, Dallas.

I actually do visit your shop, often, as I love jewellery and purchase often. I have bought a number of items as gifts from your store. The thing with art is that it does come down to an individual’s taste.

I did categorise Glass with Glass as a Best Kept Secret rather than Overrated!
