Hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day weekend! My boyfriend took me to White Scar Cave near Ingleton, North Yorkshire (England). For anyone who enjoys going underground with a hard hat and has an interest in cave formations/caverns I’d recommend! I’d also suggest suitable footwear. Unaware of my underground activities, I was not equipped with such a necessity and spent the tour tip-toeing in heeled boots to avoid the peril of metal walkway grating. Hmmm.
Here are some of the things I have been creating of late…
pompoms / rope / fabric knots / brass beads / twisted chain
leather / brass beads / fabric knots / chain
Working with leather cord and fabric knots allow me to create more sculptured shapes. I will definitely be developing this technique further.
leather / gold plated metal
I’m fondly reminded of friendship bracelets…
I’ve been testing out a sample for the past week and I’m a little in love.
A remade version of the twisted metal necklace, this time with narrower mesh.
I’ll be replacing the grosgrain ribbon with thick black silk and then it’s ready to list in the shop.
I finally got a chance to perfect the mesh bracelet last week and my hands are still healing from the perils of working with metal. I’ve already had a number of requests for the mesh bracelet since I posted the updated version to my tumblr. I’ll be making a batch of them this week!
oh, I almost forgot!! I’m giving away one of my sailor’s knot bracelets over at Post Grad Haircut. All you have to do is leave a comment with your email address. Easy. The giveaway ends tonight at midnight so be quick!!
