But then life interfered with its own set of plans, I had an interview for which I redid my portfolio, attended the lampworking workshop, created pieces for a shoot and was travelling for a week while trying to launch my new collection so I didnt have any time to create the masterpieces I had in mind.
So here are a couple of quick fix things that I made for the hop. By the way if you are wondering Haberdashery means items sold in a haberdasher’s store like buttons, zippers – basically a sewing supplies store. I have never heard it before this hop and was glad to learn about it.
The first is a cuff bracelet inspired by vintage romance. I have never done a vintage looking piece before so it was quite new to me. The upper transparent wired ribbon has been lined by a beige satin ribbon and folded simply in the ends to finish the bracelet with a simple clasp. The wire in the ribbon helps retain not just the shape, but also the excess ribbon. It sounds like a genius idea now but I thought of it simply as I did not have end clamp of that size – Yes! Necessity indeed is the mother of invention. The focal is a plastic shank button I have been hoarding for the past 10 -15 years and it has some lovely golden flecks on it. I wire wrapped it to the ribbons to set it and embellished it with a looped pearl chain to hide the wire.
That’s it for now guys, Hopefully tomorrow being sunday I would find some time to hop and visit all the wonderful bead bloggers and see their beautiful Haberdashery based creations. Do join me in my journey
