[Smiles like a loon] Here it is the new jewellery range now selling in my shop, it’s super cute and makes a statement with any outfit. Check out my shop HERE! or follow the menu above.
Well, here it is the finished Re-mixed Dimensions collection. I’m so happy with these final pieces, there’re all very different but sit well together. Constructed textiles are amongst my favourites due to how tactile you can make them.
I have to give a hugh thank you to Catherine who modelled for me, she looks amazing.
After initial researching of all the various things I found influential for this project. I started playing with adornment of my own, using different weighted and textured materials and making each piece individually, decorating them by hand or with a sewing machine and arranging each piece onto a stand to create a silhouette I like, then sewing all the various pieces together by hand, so that it may be worn on the body.
These are some constructed textile experiments I’ve played with, I’m quite happy with them and I’ve used a wide range of methods these are fun to make and if you haven’t tried felting before I highly recommend it.
Over the last week I’ve been playing with constructed textiles and thought I’d try laying brass buttons in a dish of latex (so much fun!) It took about 3 days to dry out and when I removed the buttons the latex had imprinted the pattern and taken the colouring from them. Now I can cut them up and use them as buttons.
