papaver

It is finally Spring and I am patiently waiting for all the seed I sowed several weeks ago to pop their little heads out of the earth. Including hundreds of little pastel poppies which I am very excited about. Hence the name of this new piece.

Three of my stoneware beads in pastel shades on handmade silk cord dyed with pomegranate, turmeric, marigold, madder and gardenia.

Simple knot closure. This piece has a drop of approx 36cm.

In the shop now.

Nar is the Turkish name for pomegranate. And fresh pomegranate is what I used to dye the silk for the hand woven strap on this piece. Pomegranate is still my favourite source of dye and fresh pomegranate is where it’s at. I wove the strap on my little table top rigid heddle loom, I love its naïve texture. Paired with my glazed stoneware beads strung on marigold dyed silk and hammered copper.

In the shop now.
