More Nina knots and Found objects
I've been busy catching up on some jewellery orders for Antipodes gallery in Sorrento. These are a couple that I sent off today.
I sometimes make the complete necklace using the knots Nina
taught in the workshop when she was here in February.
On the ones that have lots of 'drops' I tend to use 'tiger tail' as this makes the necklace lighter.
Earlier this year I went to the local Art Truck garbage recyle centre and amongst my 'treaure' were these cardboard rings, cut from heavy duty cardboard rolls. I've been painting and sealing them for added strength and incorporating them into my necklaces. They are very strong when they've been sealed with a heavy duty varnish.
We keep rushing outside as it's a total eclipse of the moon happening right now, but unfortunately it's cloudy and we only catch glimpses of it. Oh well better go and check again.
