Phew! Just made the deadline.
I've been making Softwear for the Powerhouse Museum Shop. The pieces will be for sale in the shop, along with other contemporary jewellery, to coincide with DIANA: A Celebration. Her royal wedding gown, personal items and some of her jewellery will be on show.
This batch has been made in a "pale and interesting" palate; colours of seashells. The pieces are predominantly made from pre-loved tapestry wool but I've had to buy some extra colours as my vast stash is beginning to run out. The beads and buttons are also pre-loved. The braided cotton chord is new. It's so much fun to full the pieces.......they shrink into surprising little shapes. You can see all the pieces here.
All 17 pieces will also be for sale in the Gooseflesh Boutique.
The progress of the Coral Garden received many wonderful responses. Thanks everyone...... I appreciate it. I've decided to make it another whimsical hat because I love the response I get when I show it to people. My friend's and family try it on and instantly become vey silly......... my favourite thing. It will be going to LA in Jan'08 along with the Rubbish Vortex. I'm looking for someone very special to wear it on opening night.
Hi Dad! If you are reading this............ I love you!
