Friday Jewels

Jewel colour weaving coming off the loom today. I’m working on some new products with a friend Rosemary Horn. She will add some embroidery stitch magic to them and they will become little wall art pieces and brooches.

Rosie and I will be selling these amongst other lovely goodies at the Great Christmas Market  on the 26th November.

Our first mini range is called ‘Fly Home’ which features three designs and various colour stories – each with a distinctly New Zealand flavour and hand-made look.

Beachcomber, dreamweaver

I’ve been wanting to make one of these wall hangings for a long time. I simply tied on some natural textured yarns onto a piece of driftwood (using larkspur knots); attached some delicate beach finds; did a bit of hand weaving over and under groups of threads here and there; and finally, added a touch of silvery sparkle.

Think I’ll call it a ‘dreamweaver’ – maybe it looks a bit 1970’s, but spending an hour quietly making something with natural elements has made me really happy 🙂

Yarn Fun

Having some fun with gorgeous colours and fibres.

New summer-time tassel garlands made this week. (2.5meters long $37.50  – custom lengths and colours available at $15 per meter )

I also made some ‘Twine’ on my old ashford spinning wheel. It’s great for gift wrapping and craft projects. ($4 for each 5m length)

Available at The Little Beehive Co-op, Nelson or message me if you would like some direct.
