Myvwany, Frankie and their kiddies!


Bamikbam is all about delightful, fun goodies, focusing on jewellery and hand-sewn treasures. The ladies put love into every one of their items.

Frankie and Myvanwy have been great friends since meeting in 2011 at mothers group when their two little girls were born. Their love of crafting has been part of their regular get togethers, often beading and sewing over a glass of wine, or two ๐Ÿ˜‰ Now joining forces, Bamikbam Design has become an integral part of their lives with the constant hunt for unique materials to create gorgeous treasures. They can’t wait to share our creations with you!

Bamikbam Design has been in existence since 2002. Frankie created the brand with her unique colour and material combos, taking them to the Canberra market scene. Frankie often came home in “the red” from supporting surrounding stalls in their ventures!

The two friends recently decided, after many Friday arvo (happy hour!) brainstorming sessions, that Myvanwy would join Frankie; adding a few hand sewn treats to compliment her incredible collection of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and brooches.

โ€˜We have been hanging out for such a long time, it just felt natural to put our creations together. It hasnโ€™t been all smooth sailing, making a website from scratch was no mean feat for a couple of crafters like us!โ€™ Frankie said.
โ€˜We just really wanted to get our pieces out there, we know they make us feel good by adding pops of colour to our everyday outfits. And theyโ€™re great gifts to brighten up your friendsโ€™ days, so share the love ladies.โ€™
