There are larger recycled leather journals featuring various textiles & trims awaiting their finishing touches; others are half way through, some are still forming in my mind. A tidy up takes place, only to need repeating the next day, and the next.
What is a studio without a little chaos, I say. So let that mess be. It means stuff is happening, the creativity is pouring from you.
Here is a preview of the larger books I have brewing.
I considered also returning to a design which I have repeated many times over the years - my 'Bundler' & 'Wrapture' books which open up like a present. You can see more of these here:
Meanwhile I have been stitching miniature books at night. Two more little artists made it into the store last night. One sold within minutes but the other remains for the time being. I have come up with a new twist on this design, combining my other elements into it. Each time I create one of these I look forward to the next.
Here is the black one, which has sold.
And the little brown one, which I have covered with remnants of the vintage jacket leather, and a tiny snippet of some gorgeous green linen from this book (& also this book) a while back, which I saved a sliver because I loved it so much. I wish I could find more of this linen.
You will find more necklaces with these combination elements of my work,
in store leading up to Christmas.
Keep an eye out on Facebook & Instagram.
