Local designer's graceful creations

08/08/2011 by Jil Hogan

Local designer Graciela Topal is fascinated by buttons and beads. Her range, Trade With Grace, is a line of unique and playful jewellery made from buttons and beads, matching colours, textures and styles in unusual ways to create unique, eye-catching pieces. “They are versatile, playful and fun to work with,” says Topal of her medium of choice. “They are available in so many different shapes, sizes and colours and it’s possible to obtain a range of different effects just by playing around with them. And most importantly, they look great on anything.”

To see the future, one must only look to the past. Like many who came before him and after him, Julius Caesar had the support of the people but the loathing of the players. They conspired. They persuaded. They whispered it was for the good of the country. All they needed to succeed was Brutus. Poor patriotic Brutus. He was like a son to Caesar and a poster boy for the republic. But not even a front-man of such unimpeachable integrity could avert the total and utter disaster their daggers set in motion.

With almost a full house the band got the crowd jumping, crowd surfing and moshing before they even hit the middle of their set list, and you couldn't help but get carried away with their music and dance along.
