Our Story

B&V are Sarah & Cody, two women based in Regional Victoria, Australia. Creating colourful & cheerful things has always bought a smile to our faces & it's a daily delight to be able to help others create those things too!

Shaking up the Shape Cutter scene in 2019, offering modern shapes in fresh colours but most importantly: sold individually. Most cutters back then were sourced from internationally based, traditionally focused printers & had to be bought in large sets of sizes that weren't always right for slab earring making.

In early 2020 we made the exciting decision to grow into
your one-stop-shop for Earring Supplies, focused on contemporary polymer clay making. 

Now in 2021 we're working super hard behind the scenes to continue to grow that range & bring some exciting new things to the table (helloooo resin!). 

To keep up to date on new products, check out our instagram.

We would like to thank you all. Since June 2020 Blackbird and Violet has made monthly donations from our sales to the groups below. Cumulatively we've given over $25,00 so far and are proud with your ongoing support to keep this total growing.
