The chainmaille shrug is finished!
More chainmaille inspiration. For a future project? [wink, wink]
I ordered these TiroTiro earrings in early November because her lead time on made to order was up to 3 weeks. On December 19th I still hadn’t received them, so I sent her an email kindly asking of their status. It turns out weeks ago they were marked already shipped, and on top of that one of the styles had been recently discontinued. She offered to refund my money on that one pair or replace it with another style (any cost discrepancy would be on her). I picked a replacement pair, and since I had really wanted to wear them to a big family Christmas party on December 22, she overnight FedExed them! I’m still in awe at her customer service and eternally grateful for all she did for me.
Still experimenting with non-traditional materials, and newly influenced by this company I was recently told about, Tonle.
I borrowed my rigid heddle loom back and started weaving with denim strips cut from discarded jeans. I’m thinking about making a kimono style jacket with the material. We received new pillows for Christmas, so I started spinning the stuffing from our old ones to use as warp on another weaving project. Polyester pillow stuffing warp and VHS tape weft.
I leave you with photos from Tonle’s website where they used mountains of textile factory waste as a backdrop.
