Trick or Treat

Polli Team - Monday, October 31, 2011

 

The neighbourhood is looking a little bit creepy with giant spiders and cob webs featuring on many doorsteps, prepare yourself for the trick or treaters knocking on your door tonight! 

News Watch - Women's Day

Polli Team - Sunday, October 30, 2011

  

Polli's salvaged ply Gum Tree jewellery stand as featured in The Style File.

Dreaming of...

Polli Team - Saturday, October 29, 2011

   

ALAS – all light all shadow – is a range of beautiful bedroom wear (they are more than PJs) made from certified organic cotton using fair trade labour. We love the designs and the sustainable ethos behind the brand. Pick some up from the Grand Social or one of their stockists .  

Paper Balloons

Polli Team - Friday, October 28, 2011

  

Indie recently learnt the hard truth about helium balloons - they do not come back! To see her little face drop as the balloon drifted up into the sky was heart breaking.

We love these paper balloons from UK site the Sister's Guild, reusable and made from environmental paper, they add colour and character without costing the earth!

 

I love cracked log lamp

Polli Team - Thursday, October 27, 2011

Tasmanian designer Duncan Meerding's work Cracked Log Lamp has been short listed for the Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award. His entry (above) isa series of lamps made from salvaged timber. When the lamp is switched off the piece looks like an ordinary log with a polished top, when switched on light escapes through the cracks illuminating the bark and releasing bands of light. We love the beauty of the design and the sustainable focus but the piece is especially interesting as Meerding is legally blind and his vision compares to this release of small bands of light.

Polli Spotting - ABC

Polli Team - Tuesday, October 25, 2011

 

Check out Sydney botanist Nathalie Nagalingum wearing our Elm pendant on the ABC. Nathalie was interviewed about her research on cycad plants. Nathalie's research dissolves the myth that these beautiful plants have been around since the dinosaurs. After speaking with Nathalie we've already started sketching cycads for our next collection. Have you got a favourite plant you'd like to see as a piece of Polli jewellery?

 

 

Chai-llenge

Polli Team - Monday, October 24, 2011

 

In the Polli studio we love a good cuppa. Through winter our favourite tea was organic T2 chai and there's nothing more entertaining than seeing your friends struggle to drink the delicious beverage you've just created them.

In response to the crazy coffee vessel challenge we set Anna earlier in the year, which saw her drinking coffee out of very random things Claudia has recently received the 1lt honey jar chai and the giant saucer chai (see Anna's coffee cup for scale!).

Chai varies so much when you order it in a cafe - our favourite is half a cup of strong loose leaf tea sprinkled with cinnamon and stirred with a tea spoon of honey,  then topped with half a cup of steamed bonsoy soy milk. By sprinkling the cinnamon directly onto the water, not the milk you don't risk inhaling it and if you're very clever you can make beautiful chai-latte art!

Got some Chai-llenge vessel ideas? Let us know!

Stem - Balmain

Polli Team - Saturday, October 22, 2011

 

Stem in Balmain is Polli's longest running retailer. Back before we made stainless steel jewellery our first products were polypropylene baskets (hence the name Polli) and Stem ordered 36 baskets. We were over the moon! Stem continues to showcase our entire collection and we wanted to share their beautiful display with you.

Stem is stocks a gorgeous collection of designer giftware from around the world specialising in Scandinavian brands like Stelton and Marimekko. The space boasts a raw sandstone wall down one length and an open terrace at the back with outdoor products.

Visit Stem at 295 Darling Street Balmain or online.
