I thought it to be time to feature another etsy artist and look at the amazing work of Andy. Her silver work is very unusual. Here is what she writes about it:
"Unusual Funky ONE OF A KIND organic metalwork....made of .999 and .925 silver, silver and copper. Most is fold formed.
Made for the woman who is not afraid to be different...or conservative with a twist."
I am so excited. I just set up my shop for instant digital downloads. From now on, when you buy a tutorial, you will receive the download link as soon as you have paid for it. No waiting time for you and easier for me. Thanks etsy.
Although it is not spring here in Australia, I like to be part of the springtime in the northern hemisphere and offer a discount in my etsy shop. Only for 2 days, I give 20% off everything, even the items already for sale, that is till the 22nd of March.
This spiral neckpiece made out of felt and embroidery had such a success on etsy last week. It was featured in several treasuries and got many hearts and than I sold it yesterday on the market. So if you can not find it anymore on etsy that's why.
All the ponchos, except the second one from last post, are sold.
You can find it here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/lizetfrijters?section_id=5225644 together with other ponchos. I have added some new summer ponchos from previous collections, they are especially popular locally here as a summer accessory.
This is my first cotton T-shirt that I eco printed and like a lot. All the others are not so great. I used bottle brush, the red one, eucalyptus leaves and onion skins. It is also the first one that I try that isn't my size. Oh well, I will make it fit. I have some recycled cotton sheet fabric that is dyed in the same bath, I might combine both of them into a dress. The first image is the back and the second is the front.
This motivates me even more to keep looking for more safer alternatives. I have already chosen to use organic wool, natural dyes, fair trade silk and organic cottons, with the use of second hand natural fibres. My next step is to grow my own dye plants, including indigo or woad and I also want to explore more of the natives for their colour potential.
Tomorrow morning we will be privileged to see a total solar eclipse right here. That is if the weather permits. For those who cannot see it in real life, here is a webcam where you can watch it : http://www.eclipsecairns.com/
