New Work

'Santa Fe" is finished

'Beached' has been 'framed' in a different way. The painted frame has been added after the piece was stitched on a fabric back ground.

Jewelry piece of the month

It is summer, it is hot. So I chose a bright piece of jewelry with a water theme for my 'jewelry piece of the month'. Lava, coral and silver.

Santa Fe

Here is my 'first layer' of the piece Santa Fe. I have done a lot of stitching but I realize it is not really visible at this point. I hope the next layer of stitching will more visible and add to the dimension of the piece.

Southwest Inspiration

Our trip to the New Mexico and Colorado last and this month is for sure worth a new post in my blog. This is not the first time that I have visited the area, but it has been a first at this time of the year. The colors were just amazing and so different from my previous experiences. They might have had a wetter spring and early summer or maybe more snow then usual but it just seemed so much greener than I remembered the area. This could just be my impression but I for sure enjoyed it. Nevertheless my favorite colors were the reds, yellows and subtle earth tones and I am already working on my first projects with these colors. 

Besides the colors another highlight were the historic sites of the pueblo indians and the rockies. I could also mention the food, which is for sure an art by itself, but since I am a fiber artist the food  is not the main reason for writing about the trip. 

The first project I will try to tackle is going to be an adobe wall 'structure', inspired by numerous buildings in Santa Fe and Taos Pueblo. And from there we will see...
