Rombo scarves

Light, fun and funky Rombo scarves, made from merino wool and hand painted silk squares that I felted together diagonally.

Bit bigger merry Christmas

Today is a special day for many people around the whole world and I would like to send my best wishes to everyone. I hope we all enjoy with the loved people who are in our hearts. Merry Christmas!

Those pictures in the last post are a bit small so here I'm showing you some bigger.

Nuno

I started several nuno pieces in summer but for now these are the only two completely finished. I like the contrast created between the silk and the wool. As the wool felts and shrinks, the silk has to adapt creating beautiful screwed up and pleated textures.

A beading session: Flat Pebble necklaces in process

At the beginning, all is neat and tidy. You can see in this picture my beading boxes. They store beautiful stones and beads, silver findings and my own pieces of felt. I use a fabric mat, it stores rolled up with my unfinished pieces, until the next time it comes out. This time there was not too much in it.

I missed a few pictures but anyway.. boxes are open, pebbles selected for each necklace and combined with stones and beads. Each one has its own way and its own time.

Gradually, the mat is fuller and all the beads are more mixed up. Many necklaces are put together and many new ideas have come up but none of them get finished. They all still need to be completed and they all need clasps. Then the mat is rolled up until it comes out again.

Sorting out pebbles

Remember all those pebbles I made in summer? Well, at some point since then and now I sorted them all separating colours and picking best combinations for necklaces and earrings. I then stored them and left them waiting for the next beading session, which I will show you in the next post.

Long time, no see..

Hi! I'm sorry for my absence. I'm still here, still working.. just missing a bit of time for sharing with you. Busy times right now but remembering you. I've still to show you my summer felt production. Not all was finished but some of it was. I'm now working on other things, mainly polymer clay, and my blog is behind me again. These days I've been programming some posts to show you and try and catch up while I continue to work.
