Carrying on from last week’s feature, I would like to introduce you to the Koala – a native to Australia.
This plump fuzzy marsupial lives in Eastern Australia and can spend up to 20 hours a day sleeping so you will often see them snuggled into the branches of the eucalyptus trees in which they live and feed on.
Their babies which are called “joey” are kept safe in a little pouch on the front of the mother Koala for 6 months. In this time, the joey learns how to grasp leaves with its hands and returns to the pouch to hide or sleep.
Our wee pendant captures the essence of these cute cuddly Koala holding a beautiful piece of Paua in their paws symbolising the greens, yellows and other colours of their native habitat and surroundings.
The iconic Sydney Opera house sits as a focal point in the middle of Sydney City Harbour.
It was opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 20th October, 1973.
There is no doubt that the Sydney Opera House is a masterpiece. It is one of the great iconic buildings of the 20th century, an image of great beauty that has become known throughout the world – a symbol for not only a city, but a whole country and continent.
What better way to honour this iconic building than create our own wee masterpiece pendant.
