Lots of jewelry going on in my studio these days - we're prepping for the new spring collection, lots of new flowers and designs. And in the middle of all of the new flowers an idea kept floating around in the back of my head.
You might recall that at times in my life I have knit - a lot. So I'm a fiber geek, and particularly enjoy playing with natural fibers, and I found myself in a local shop that sells all manner of supplies. Which is how I ended up with a bag of beautiful merino wool. Merino is like the platinum version of wool - soft and smooth, and it's the ingredient in those fancy Smartwool and Patagonia base layers. Or, in this case, my latest bracelet.
As with most experiments, some of these were awesome and some were awful, but overall I'm highly entertained by putting merino in the resin.
The people that've seen these wanted to know if I'd make them one - and while that wasn't my original plan I'm more than happy to keep playing with the merino. So, for a limited time, here's a listing for special order merino bangles.
