I finished these new necklaces on Thursday at the Maker's studio and I absolutely love them! I found the large wooden beads, which inspired me to make some complimenting paper ones that I could mix with some quirky buttons. The papers used are vintage patchwork patterns which give them a homely, nostalgic feel. I've already sold 2 (at the Made with Love market bazaar on Saturday) so I am in the process of making more paper pulp to build more chunky, organically shaped beads. I will be at the Maker again this Thursday, 10-2:30 if anyone would like to pop in and say hi. It's such a beautiful environment to work in, with plenty of other artists to draw inspiration from, plus sweeping views of the sea (and really good coffee, which is a must!) I am also in the process of trying to make more things to put on 'madeit' web site, which is tricky when you have stores waiting on orders from you. If anyone has any advice on how to do 'madeit' well, can you please let me know? Until next time, enjoy life abundantly xox
