“To create a new piece every day is almost as essential to me as breathing!”

Bok Bok B’gerk


Another Ballarat local that will be showcased at A Plus Market this Saturday, Bok Bok B’gerk creates a range of wooden laser cut jewellery, made with the eco-friendly wood of the Alderwood Tree.

If you like your jewellery bright, fun with a bucket load of charm, then Bok Bok B’gerk is for you.

Necklaces, brooches and earrings form the core range, though there are some cute little girl hair clips, that are so adorable that they could add a fun accent for a more playful hairdo.

The colourful pieces are painted by hand. I really like these pieces and find the asymmetrical earrings particularly charming.

You definitely don’t want to miss the Ballarat A Plus Market as in addition to this great local handmade jewellery there is a fabulous range of plus size clothing on offer.

Though, if you really can’t make it to the market this weekend, Bok Bok B’gerk is available online and offers a really fun subscription service – Earring of the month club, You can get a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription and receive a pair of wooden laser cut earrings each month for the duration of your subscription.

Some months the earrings will be of the hand painted/resin variety, other months they will be plain alder wood.  One thing is for sure though, you’ll never receive the same pair of earrings twice no matter how long you subscribe for.
What a great gift, awesome and FUN!

Jewellery by Lisa Kennedy


A Plus Market isn’t all about bargains, there is also always a selection of extra special pieces
that are perfect for spoiling yourself with.
The upcoming Ballarat A Plus Market on Saturday May 3rd will be home for a day to local jeweller Lisa Kennedy.

Jewellery by Lisa Kennedy is a collection of high quality, handmade jewellery pieces. Lisa designs and hand makes all the pieces in her Maldon studio.

+Market mix
Lisa’s resume is impressive having worked as a trade jeweller in London, specialised in pearls in Darwin and precious metals in Canterbury. Now based in Maldon, Lisa has total creative freedom,
using it to create unique and elegant jewellery pieces.

Jewellery by Lisa Kennedy is all hand made therefore rings can be any size.
Any ring that is in stock can be resized or remade if required free of charge.
This is fantastic news for ladies like me who have if you are larger than average (and also for those with or smaller), there’s no paying extra for that perfect fit.

The Jewellery by Lisa Kennedy stall at A Plus Market will be stocked with a range of larger rings and neck pieces, so there even more chance that the piece you fall in love with is going to fit straight away.

I have a real soft spot, some may even say addiction, to jewellery so I am looking forward to having a very up close and personal check out of this divine range.

Come along on Saturday May 3 and splurge on a gorgeous one off piece, made by a very talented local artist. Also don’t forget that Mother’s Day is just around the corner.
