My blog seems to have been rather embroidery-biased over the last few weeks, so I thought I would share a few bits and pieces I made for Christmas. Above is a collage (created courtesy of Picmonkey) showing some of the jewellery and decorations I made for various friends and colleagues. I made some polymer clay decorations and adapted the gemstones, colours and sentiments to suit the recipient. I think they were liked! The macrame bracelets were for presents too, as was the memory wire one. I have now purchased lots of little gemstone chips and nuggets to make lots more memory wire bracelets.
My other main project was another rabbit, as my friend who saw my originals asked how much one would be, so I suggested making her one for Christmas. (They take me a long time to make, with many trials, tribulations and frustrations along the way, so if I charged for them, the cost would be prohibitive). She asked for a Spring colouring for her rabbit, so off I went. She ended up being a bit like a daffodil and the ear material was from the puffed sleeve dress which started this whole rabbit thing.
Before I gave her to her new owner, I did a little photo shoot with my original rabbits...they looked rather aloof and uninterested, I thought.
All three together for the last time. The yellow rabbit's new owner seemed very pleased and had decided to call her 'Martha' which does suit her (I haven't even got round to naming mine yet - 'the pink one' and 'the blue one' is as far as I have got.)
