Introducing A New Jewellery Label :

Introducing POP KIOSK  a contemporary jewellery label designed and made by Madeleine
Cruise in Newcastle New South Wales. Inspired by old shop signage and the
details of 1930’s architecture, POP KIOSK combines strong geometric composition
with bold colour to create striking design pieces in timber and paint.
Influenced by a love of dance, each piece takes the name of a pop song and
references a time when music was played on the juke box in the local
 milk bar. Pastel tones and playful patterns
reference the iconic décor, flavours and pop rhythms that could be found at the kiosk.  
Each piece from POP KIOSK is a unique product, made from hand cut timber that
is shaped with bevelled edges and sanded for a soft finish. Painted with acrylic
paint and completed with a matte varnish the final surface is polished and water
resistant. The current collection from POP KIOSK consists of a range of brooches
and will soon expand to include a series of earrings and necklaces.
POP KIOSK is now available for purchase online through it’s Etsy store.
