One of the best things about the Christmas Prizeapolooza is the great little businesses that get on board that I wouldn’t have known about without this showcase. One of those great little businesses is Elk & Tom

Elk & Tom is owned and operated by Elizabeth Klavins who is a fibre artist. Elk & Tom offers a range of Artisan jewellery and home wares created through hand embroidery and needle felting/wet felting.

Elizabeth says Elk & Tom was created a few years ago when her son was born. She says she wanted to pursue her creative side while on leave. She says she has always been creative, so to her creating her own little business was the natural next step.

Over the years you may have seen Elk & Tom at places like the Bathurst Artisan Markets or online through her social media pages. Recently she jumped on board with the beautiful store in Bathurst “Bespoke & Co.”. Elk & Tom is also part of “The Journey person” which is a collective of artisans from the Central West, who get together a few times a year, selling their handmade items at Pop ups held at The Corner Store Gallery in Orange. Elk & Tom will very soon have their own online store which is exciting for 2020!

The thing that sets Elk & Tom apart from other artists is that a lot of her work is inspired by beautiful Australian Flora and Fauna. It’s unique and quite popular with people.

Elk & Tom is a fantastic idea for gifts for those who are looking to send a little bit of our flora/fauna overseas to loved ones.
