As the winter draws closer wearing silver jewelry becomes less appealing…why? Because the metal is cold. So, I thought I would make something with a little more warmth.
I used wool as the foundation for this piece then added bits of precious fabric from: gerdiary.blogspot.com
I then took a piece of coffee dyed muslin and stamped it with this:
The stamp is from a poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning: “How do I love thee…..”
The button closure is a turquoise bead. I used black elastic cording for the hoop.
The button that I sewed on for decoration is from an old Tommy Bahama shirt. It is made from a coconut.
I added some beading for detail:
This was a fun find:
The two figures are from Yankee Candle. They really are diffusers but, I am not going to use them for that. I am working on a little vignette of Dia De Los Muertos. I plan on hanging the whole little vignette on the wall when it is done.
This is my attempt at dying some muslin turquoise/teal. Very spotty but, good enough.
I wanted it to be lighter but, I think I will just go with it. I will be using it for a gift I am working on.
Lastly, I have chosen this new blog template and will be adding new details when I can.
Have a great week <3
