GRAB a beautiful, unique handmade gift for friends and loved ones at the Made on the Left Xmas Markets.

The handmade artisan market will include a range of gift ideas including art, jewellery, fashion and homewares from more than 60 local creatives.

Abstract Freo’s Anna Peluso, who will be offering a series of abstract local images showing Fremantle’s icons in a different way, said her work was a “personal, soul rebuilding project”.

“It wasn’t originally intended for public view, however having shared it with friends, I was encouraged that it resonated with people, it makes people think and smile,” she said.

“Abstract Freo is available in prints, t-shirts and pottery keep cups.

“I haven’t been involved in Made on the Left before but I’m excited to be part of the event, slightly nervous, but keen to see how my illustrations and products are received.”

Beaconsfield’s Lisa Gardner, owner of resin jewellery brand Kor, said she loved creating items that merged nature and jewellery.

“I love the feedback that I receive about how different my pieces are, and I love how much joy it brings to others,” she said.

“My individual pieces are organic in shape, and comprise of botanical bangles and cuffs, rings, earrings, brooches and cufflinks.

The pieces are all set in individual moulds with high quality resin, hand poured and hand sanded with love.

“Made on the Left showcases bespoke pieces that are crafted by WA artisans, you can always find something unique and individual that is hard to find anywhere else.”

The Made on the Left Xmas Markets are at Princess May Park, Fremantle on November 17 and 18 from 9am to 5pm.
