Note from shop owner Natures Art Melbourne is closed until end of August 2017 for my yearly winter walkabout. It will be a mix of time for me, spiritual growth, family and nature.
"We need to fully unplug to be able to recharge." ... this time is my gift to me.

A big THANK YOU to my beautiful customers for their incredible trust, support and following me so faithful along my creative path. It means a lot to me.
I am blessed to be able to create and find people all around the globe who understand the voice of my creations.
Creating makes my heart sing but there is also much joy in the connections etsy brought to me over the years.

Thank you for YOU.

these ones took a long way from down under to germany but at last arrive:-) I am absolutely happy with them; while reading with children from the class of my 8years old son they were asking me, why the earrings look so different? i told them, what Martina wrote in the discription, that one stone broke in cutting and she took the little round one to complete- the children were so fascinated and understand it in it`s deep way to create something, that no more questions has to been ask to continue:-) thank you Martina

i love the round shape of the stones and the combination with the little quartz. they turned out a little darker by wearing them but still beautiful. Thank you for these earth treasure:-)

About

Natures Art Melbourne a sustainable one woman business. CELEBRATION OF CREATION - naturally sourced & handmade in Australia.

I am social worker, tailor, creative soul, surfer, dancer, Austrian living in Australia.
I am in love with life even though life & death hit me hard not that long ago.

In the year 2000 I traveled Australia on my own and met a push bike rider in the middle of nowhere and my whole life turned upside down.
6 months later I migrated to Australia and asked the universe: "What is my path here on this continent?"

The answer was simple -
"Walk the earth gently as she is your mother"
"Honour the land - slow down and see the abundance there is"
"Follow your heart & intuition and simply create"

...I have the eye to see, I have the hands to create.
Self taught creativity knows no limits.

So we went walkabout every winter in Australia's Outback (me & the bike rider - a truly special man, my husband) to slow down, to walk the land, to reconnect and to start to see and receive gifts from Nature.
In 2012 we fell in love with a place in SW Queensland, which we enjoyed for a few years and which is my winter retreat now.
My lover, soul mate & husband headed back to the light in March 2016. The roller coaster of grieve will be with me for a while as there is no short cut to that. I will walk out of this wiser and stronger and live a joyous life ... I promised him that.

My 3 months in the Outback are there to simply focus on working wood. In my search for stones I do not dig - Mother Earth offers much freely on the surface or other people leave remnants behind which are treasures for me.

Stones, wood and feathers collected with respect and worked with love by the same hands - something rare in our world.
I do also buy stones in, but I love to start with rough rock and
allow the material to speak and the creativity to flow.

What you will feel in my creations is the work process of "ease & flow",
a precious thing missing in our world of success at any cost.

A secret shared with all creative souls out there:
- say it, sing it, write it, tell it to everyone:
"I am able to make a good living from what I love doing!"
Truly believe in yourself and follow your heart.

This made Natures Art Melbourne & me what we are today.
