It has to be silk!





...to make necklaces for my "abstract Art" beads!
nothing is comparable with dupion silk . This fabric makes the colors shine!

Still on the experimental stage, and dealing with a lot of trial and error.
cut out in diagonal strips, prewashed ....maybe a thin cord inside..?
The ends are tricky to get them perfect, don´t want to have any metal components, that should be pure textile jewelry.
...more about next time...

and now for something different : out into the garden.... first warm and sunny spring weekend here!

  1. I try too to use as less as possible metal in my crochet work. Not easy ... indeed ! But rewarding when it works out.
