the beauty of fiber

using a mix of goodies from the Thread Studio I have created a funky cuff for myself...I love how warm and soft it is and I'm thinking that I really need a different colour for each day of the week

I began with some silkworm cocoon fiber which is hand dyed, I added some of the stained gauze and hand felted some little flowers

the lace was stained with my Starburst Stains and once dry a little Smooch Ink finished the look

I used the Smooch Ink on the cotton thread to blend it in slightly and I just had to use some beautiful crystal beads to add a bit of bling

Hi ya Linda. I think your work is amazing. You have been under the heading of "inspired by" on my blog for some time now, ( just thought I would let you know ) and have been reading through some of your older posts and discovered a connection with Louise Nelson....she is a friend, an acquaintance and teacher at my local scrapbook store. I adore the little crowns you have made, love em.
