STOCKISTS OF DANI’S ARTWORK

  • The Whimsical Bead Website – A selection of Dani’s pieces are showcased here in the ‘Artwork’ section.  Some are available for purchase by contacting Dani whilst some have been sold.
  • incube8r Gallery & Emporium – This is an amazing handmade emporium & emerging artist gallery located in Fitzroy, Victoria which is home to more than 90 ‘cubers’ and 10-15 visual artists at any one time. incube8r believe that if retail is to survive in this fast paced digital world it needs to be exciting, colourful, varied and exciting. They run this space to be as interactive as possible and encourage our cubers and the general public to engage with them through their cubing system, group exhibitions, workshops and as patrons of the arts.
    incub8r can’t see any reason to buy mass-produced when you can support small businesses, often run by parents of young children, retired people finally doing what they love, students, full time artists and dabblers. There’s so much that can be created right here in Melbourne & by supporting local businesses we’re shortening the supply chain and helping the public buy direct from the maker.

    Do stop in and say hello if you get the chance – this is a wonderful little store.
  • Redgum Australia Gallery – previously in Lilydale, now relocated to Olinda, Victoria, Redgum Gallery features the work of some very talented artists. 3/47-53 Olinda-Monbulk Rd, Olinda VIC 3788
