Textile Beaded Cuffs

I really enjoy taking a stroll along Aberdour beach and I can't resist coming home with my pockets filled every time with beach treasure. I wanted to use these unique little pieces on some new jewellery. These little cuffs have been a long time in the making and I'm really pleased how each one has turned out very different.

Now available in my Etsy Store Boxoftrix

Easter Bunnies

Easter bunnies for everyone :o)

We are having an Easter Sunday family gathering at my sisters today. I made these little chocolate bunnies filled with mini marshmallows to give to everyone.

I hope you all have a peaceful Easter.

Stitched Paper Pendants

I have been working on these little stitched paper pendants. First painting some paper with fabric paints then stitching over the surface, this created interesting texture, sometimes tearing the paper, I then embellished them with punched flowers, dragonflies & beads. I stitched them around tiny mirror tiles. The one on the bottom right is the only one made using stitched fabric.

These little pendants measure only 22mm square

I listed the three paper ones in my Etsy shop Boxoftrix ......One already sold....

More coming soon.......................

Studio Update

~ Studio Update ~
Doesn't time fly! Due to the bad weather the planned date for the installation of my studio / workshop has to be postponed. They arrived on Friday the 29thFeb as planned but heavy winds & rain made it impossible for them to go any further than putting the base down. It was finally installed on the Monday 3rd March. Since then we have been working on the interior, fitting polystyrene insulation boards and foil. The wood cladding is coming along nicely and wow! what a difference it all makes it feels warm in there and that's before the heating has been installed. You can see lots more pictures of the Boxoftrix Studio and its progress on my Flickr
