Maker's Market,ArtwordArtbar, Ferguson Station

Olga's work is very well done and any discerning lady would be pleased to be the proud owner of it. She does original work which comes from her own creative nature so it would be something that you would not find in a jewellery store. If you have the time, please go and see her work and the work of other artisans in the downtown Hamilton area!
Hamilton is a very creative city, with poets, short story writers, jewellery artists, musicians, something for every body's taste!
Come and visit Hamilton - especially in the summer when the waterfront beckons and the cool splashing mist of our 121 waterfalls sprays on upturned faces with a gentle caress. A lovely place to visit with lots to do.

Olga's original work


Three strand necklace against black stand. Soft, pliable leather with silver bead work. Good for people with nickel alergies.

Two of her very elegant designs - soft leather strands and jewels.

Olga and her work at Ferguson Station. She is originally from Columbia and works with some beautiful stones from there.

Anita suggested we go together to the Maker's Market at Christ Church Cathedral which we did. It was very nice and two of the gals bought some organic vegetables. We then went over to ArtWord/Artbar to see Janice and Holly's lovely fan work and signed the guest book.

Coffee and cake at Ole, a lovely Portuguese restaurant/bakery and as we were going to where Anita parked her car, we bumped into Jeff on his bike. He had been to a Fringe performance and seemed to have enjoyed it. He was on the way to the Maker's Market and then the ArtWord/Artbar.

We drove over to Ferguson Station at King and Ferguson as I wanted to see Olga who is exhibiting her beautiful jewellery there.

Sabowoon (at Ferguson Station in downtown Hamilton) is only on Saturdays during the summer. There are various artisans displaying their work, including my friend Olga. They close at 5 p.m. and can be reachable by bus. Any bus that runs on Main Street will take you to Ferguson Street. Return trip going back downtown is really easy, any bus running on King.

I decided to advertise for Olga on my blog and you will see some lovely photos of her work.


Their hours are Saturdays only during the summer until 5 p.m. and fortunately for everybody there is a shelter over the whole area as the rain came down in buckets! The wind also whipped up things and people had to anchor their beautiful work on their tables to keep it secure.
