Un gioiello per l'estate: vi presento Shine Sea Stars

Ecco a voi la mia ultima creazione, che poi in realtà aprirà una nuova area di sperimentazione: i gioielli!
Il primo prodotto di questa sperimentazione lo trovate qui di seguito, spero vi piaccia!
Ho utilizzato due tipi di cotone, uno azzurro e una fettuccia in colore ecrù naturale unita a corda.
Le stelle marine sono realizzate singolarmente e poi applicate sulla collana.
Essendo una collana Estiva volevo che ricordasse il mare e la spiaggia con le sue creature.

Tra una stella e l'altra ho simulato delle onde di sabbia per richiamare più il tema mare, usando il punto colonnine.

La chiusura è stata fatta sempre con il cotone in modo tale che possano indossarla tutti e che sia totalmente anallergica e fatta interamente a mano in tutte le sue parti.

Spero vi piaccia e a presto con nuovi jewels!
Se vi piace potete richiedermela andando sulla mia pagina facebook ;)

50 years of Flower Power: il Riscontro a Sidney e Nuova Tappa

Bentrovati in questo nuovo post!
In quello precedente vi ho detto che vi avrei aggiornati sull'andamento della mostra 
al Craft&Quilt Fair di Sidney,
e dando uno sguardo al blog di Prudence Mapstone ci sono bellissime novità!
Tradurrò tutto in questo mio post:

Tra pochi giorni ci sarà una nuova tappa: 
la nostra installazione sarà al Craft&Quilt Fair Di Launceston al Silverdome in Tasmania
Dunque il Flower Power tour continua!

Ma veniamo al riscontro di Sidney:

Prudence scrive che ha avuto difficoltà a fare delle foto all'opera per quanto il locale fosse pieno di visitatori, ma è riuscita a catturare qualche istante del momento con la macchina fotografica e in più ci riporta tutti i commenti delle persone scritti nel Guestbook
rivolti a lei e ovviamente a noi che abbiamo contribuito all'opera d'arte.
Ecco tutto qui di seguito:

...il nostro lavoro è stato apprezzato moltissimo e molto fotografato dalle persone =)
 ecco qui le immagini:

Il libro dei commenti dei visitatori continuerà a viaggiare per gli altri Fibershow, ma prudence simpaticamente dice che la prossima volta fotograferà le pagine del Guestbook così avrà meno da scrivere! :D

Alla Prossima Tappa!!!!
