Life, ah, life

I have been meaning to post, but life has caught up with me. I've been busy with uncrafty and unarty stuff and so slightly distracted.

Hoever, I have not been unbusy, so here it goes:

1) My Mail Me Art entry

I haven't been drawing in ages (sketches don't count) and this was a nice break. If you're interested, follow the link above. The deadline is 31 January, but it's a fun little project, or at least it was for me, maybe because I am going postal myself?

2) A felt necklace for myself.
I am in love with this one. It was hard work, as I did every single part of it - the felting, the embroidery, the crochet, the assembly...it took me three days, but it was so much fun.
It is inspired by beautiful beads of Sonya Yong James (she makes other lovely stuff. too).

Anyhoo, I wanted to make the necklace versatile (maybe because it took me ages, maybe because I was indecisive about the length), so I came up with an assembly that allows me to wear it in 3 different ways:

a) long

b) medium (with a help of a ribbon)
c) short
d) or even as a bracelet
Well, me very pleased.

Other than that, I am working on the burdies, and if I get a chance, I'll post some new jewellry in the shop tomorrow. Till then - be good and see you soon!

Ahhh my God, your drawing is fantastic and I really love your necklace, it's brilliant and possibly the happiest necklace I've ever seen x

Hi T. Your work is so beautiful!! By the way, on my monitor, it is difficult to read the "orangey" text in the links. I have an mac.

Thank you both! I am so glad that you called it a happy necklace - I feel so as well :-)

Marchi, I change the background every once in a while, but thanks for telling me, I'll change it to something more visible.

Cheers!
