A quiet place to relax and take a peek at some thoughts and images from my studio and farm. Hopefully you will find something to amuse you. Please leave a comment if it is worth your time.

A few years ago I became enamored of the work of Helen Banes and her pin woven necklaces. I had her book, Beads and Threads and followed her instructions to make these necklaces. I have only worn them a couple of times. I guess the fun was more in the making. Too fancy for me since I mainly wear T-shirts. Still, they are rather striking.
The one below used all my own hand made polymer beads. The thread is just regular embroidery floss.
These have all been hanging on my wall for a couple of years as a display. I took them down, maybe I will remember to wear them now. Tomorrow I will show you what I put up in their place.
