Eco dyed textile art you can wear

Even though I was technically having a mini holiday, I managed to get two more cuffs completed! It never feels like work to me … again, they are entirely hand stitched, using my own eco dyed fabrics (wool, silk, cotton) and threads (linen, wool, cotton), plus upcycled buttons.

market day

my stall at our local market yesterday



all buttoned up

after i made the key bracelet, i rediscovered some lovely floral wooden buttons that someone had given me

i love buttons and have quite a collection – i think i might be a buttonaholic

these particular ones were just right for the centres of some crocheted flowers

a pink crocheted cord contrasted well with the blue yarn

another button made a great closure

it was fun making this bracelet!

leaves + hardware

this is one of my early experiments in making crochet jewelry – a bracelet with leaves, and embellishments from the hardware section of our supermarket

a family member modelled it for me

i used a pewter coloured crochet cotton which I love

i also made a little envelope for it
