Wild Daisy is a custom piece woven on a warp of organic cotton-linen with a weft of hand dyed raw silk. Twined, knotted and braided into the fringe is a menagerie of beads including cowrie shells, raw rubies, water buffalo horn, bone, deer antler as well as handmade ceramic beads and vintage bone and glass beads from around the world.
A walk through a Moroccan marketplace; this piece was a custom and was woven on a warp of organic cotton-linen with a weft of hand dyed raw silk.
I am finally finishing up the customs from last year that I had to put on hold due to my neck and shoulder problems. I will be announcing soon about upcoming custom opportunities and pieces for sale.
Falling into a weaving vortex
I cut my first dovetails today; they may not be perfect but they are pretty and functional. Making displays for my new #creations going up in @desertarchaic #gallery for #torcartwalk this weekend. Lots of new weaving and adornment coming right up.
Gently sunny beginnings
Laying out a palette of raw silk
The plums say it’s spring, and so do I. I’ve been trying on all of the new necklace-adornment creations I’ve been making, just to feel them out. 🌞 The verdict is they really feel good, and I’ll have to keep some for myself. The two I’m wearing now have local #petrifiedwood and #limestone #nautalis #fossil that I’ve drilled into beads, along with shell #heishi beads and a few fossilized #dinosaurbone #beads (please dm me if you are interested in either)
The tantalizing sensory explosion of color, shape & form of walking through a Moroccan #marketplace (if only I could evoke the smell of spices and perfumes too)
