Why Spend With Us?
My name is Lyn and I live near the small community of Rylstone. I make Sterling Silver Jewellery which is stocked at the ‘Almost Anything Emporium’ in Rylstone. I love the creativity that jewellery making provides. It allows me to portray thoughts and feelings and just to make things that I like.
The happenings of 2020 has been somewhat challenging and continue to be that way. The bush fires made a significant mark – both physically and mentally: I made a small collection of Bush Fire jewellery (Conflagration) as a way of trying to deal with the mental trauma that ensued. The pair of Sulfur Crested Cockatoos that nest here each year have returned. Last year, their nesting tree near the dam burned fiercely in the Kerry’s Ridge fire that was part of the Megablaze, making it uninhabitable. They have found a new nesting tree – obviously one that had a fire in it (as seen by the chest of the bird above). So springtime and summer should see a new group of baby cockatoos!
We are living with the reality of a pandemic that threatens to take over our lifestyle and peace of mind, so we must all look out for each other, while at the same time observing common sense principles that will lead us back to some sort of norm.
Stay safe and healthy wherever you reside!
