This is a steep learning curve. Here I sit, the winter sun streaming in, and I have been working on this blog and Twitter for nearly 2 hours. Hopefully it will get easier as I practise more. Surely making brooches with felt, organza and beads comes much more easily.
This lovely brooch in blue-greens measures about 7 cm across (nearly 3 inches for those Americans out there). It has a small kilt pin rather than a brooch pin as it is to be worn on a felt jacket as a clasp. I have made it as an order. You can order one too, just send me a note.
I have also been making more of my most popular items, hematite rings with beautiful shiny beads inside. This is a 45cm (18 inch) necklace with 5cm (2 in) extender chain and is available at www.helenhoriginals.co.nz. I sell a lot of stretchy bracelets of the same design.
Now that this is done, (I hope) I will be off to the gym and then on with some bag making.
I do love working from home. :)
