INSPIRED


I've had a burst of creative energy as of late. I managed to assemble a few of these pieces while carrying an infant. That makes them even more valuable surely? 

Heirloom Cuff.



Dip-dyed needlepoint in fuchsia is artfully stitched to a background of midnight and cream toile, and accented with a scrap of sheer lace. 



Accent stitching in gold and a brass button with gold satin cord. Lined with brushed cotton linen in natural. 

Shibori Pendant. 


You've heard my rant on shibori already. I decided to get serious with my technique. 

Kantha stitch details, ceramic, agate, and natural wood beads are artfully knotted onto a wax cotton cord in black and finished with a vintage button closure. 

Reverse is a juicy floral in hot orange. Wear it either side depending on your mood. 


Some larger pieces I dyed yesterday for a tote bag in the works! 


Triple Textile Pendant Necklace. 



A collection of natural beads with tiny brass accents is artfully arranged to flank three handmade "textile beads" in woven navy and silver. 


Reverse is an earthy linen toile and hand stitched in turquoise for colorful accent. Vintage button closure. 



Available in the shop today. 

Cheers
