For the last friday of the month and last day of the year, we decided on a collaboration project for our Merry-Go-Round posts. Each of us received some supplies from another merry member and the challenge was to create a collaboration piece.
Kim of Viltalakim, asked me which colours I preferred and sent me the most DELICIOUS supplies made out of felt! I receive little acorns with their natural hats, 2 of them still on their little branches!! – felted ‘cords’ which will be perfect for bracelets and necklaces, and the most incredible piece of felt I have ever held in my hands. First the colours are my favourite combo: green and pink, I just love it! Furthermore, the felt piece had FOLDS!!!!They add texture and movement without me doing anything to it… Just fabulous!
Straight away I knew I wanted to make a cuff adding lace and wired pieces.
Working with Kim’s felt was pure pleasure, the felt is thick and soft, I hardly have any visible stitches on the back of the cuff, so no need to hide anything and it becomes a real wrist warmer, it’s sooooooo lovely and soft!!!
My wired pieces consist of a leaf with silver plated wire and semi-precious stones and a dragonfly made out of copper wire with topaze, rock crystal chips and crystals. I added embellishments of fabric and lace flowers, and a few beads, ribbon and lace that I found in my local market.
This one is MINE!!! I absolutely ADORE it!!! THANK YOU KIM!!!!
Such a nice way to finish the year, I enjoyed all our merry posts throughout 2010 and I look forward to 2011!!!
Have a look at what everyone else made!!

It''s time for another ride on the merry-go-round! Jump on and join a group of 8 artists/crafts-women as they link around the world and tell you a little about their lives in art and craft.
This month: How to care for your art - information for buyers.
My jewellery is mainly made out of silver plated and artistic wire. To enjoy it for as long as possible, it needs to be kept wrapped in tissue paper and/or sealed plastic bag, in a dry place, away from dust and humidity. The stones will not budge but the wire won't like getting wet, so avoid washing dishes and the likes while wearing it. Handmade jewellery is always a little more fragile, despite my taking huge care and many hours to make sure that all wire ends are secure, it is not as strong as machine made jewellery. Be aware, but ENJOY!!!
Here's a little extra bit, directly related to last month merry post, which was about trying something new... I dived into fabric and sewing, and managed to finish a piece I LOVE... And it's all thanks to this wonderful group of thought provoking, super friendly and supportive ladies!!! A huge thank you to you all, especially to Ruth, our guru!! :)
So here's my take on wire-wrapping and fabric:
Last but not least: I am already not very good at all at blogging... I apologise in advance, as I have a feeling it might get worse lol: We are expecting our first baby at the end of January, and he is already mushing up my brain!! So don't expect too much from me for a few months lol!!!:)
Thanks for reading! ;)
