A different kind of snippet ~

Happy FULL Day of Spring to you!

 a couple of post's ago ~
I showed you my little paper cuttings…
or sherenschnitte ~

usually I'm surrounded by snippets of thread and wool, but not this time ~
this time my worktable is scattered with paper snippets ~

here is what I've been doing in-between my needlework:

Hares under Glass

 I have always loved to wear handmade jewelry,
so I've combined my little paper snippets 
with some glass domes and sterling silver bezels to create them…

Rabbit Girl ~
This pendant has ~ SOLD ~ thank you kindly Nancy!!

 I have 4 finished so far,
and am working on more for a couple of custom orders ~

simply pretty

 I'm stringing them on a long length (approx.  18") of natural/organic polished brown hemp
that I've waxed with beeswax…

tiny bubbles of springtime

 the pendants themselves are approx. 1 1/2" across
paper used is acid free solid-dyed core "black cat" 
and my own hand parched paper…

some of them have inked details such as tiny tulips and borders, 
and leafy vines…others are more plain but the cuttings themselves have such small detail that you have to really see them in person….

...they are $28.00 each + shipping
if you'd like one, let me know or if you have a custom request for one,
I'm happy to work with you!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day my Friends!

* Blessed be *

Once again you seem to amaze me! Love them... Curious if you will be making the punch needle designs you recently shared with us into patterns? And by chance praying and fingers crossed that the hooking frames will be back for sale on etsy? Would love to order one....
thank you for sharing your talent...

As always, Peace to all,

Dear Backroad Treasures ~
Yes, the punch needle designs will be available very soon ~ plus a couple of new cross stitch designs and perhaps some wool appliqué and/or a little hooked design :)
The frames will be available soon also, keep an eye on this blog for their return!

I've been a wretched blogger my friend....but, trust me, it hasn't been without good (ok, really HORRID)reasons. I popped by today on my search for something which now escapes me as these wonderful necklaces caught my eye.....And since it is my birthday (shhh, me thinks everyone finally forgot), I'd like to treat myself if you still have one available??? If so, could you let me know my choices? (Although each is wonderful, it truly wouldn't matter....) Hugs ~ Robin

TheCrankyCrow said...

....I'm really smitten with the black bunny head if he might still be available??? Robin

Faye Henry said...
