I have my mojo a the moment - and possibly an overdose of mojo - there are a thousand ideas all running around my head at once. Jewellery - my new passion - is at top of the pile. However there is a fabric stash, measured in cubic meters, that is calling me; I have a huge bag of beautiful wool ready to felt - no, I don't know how - but I want to; there are pieces of paper in drifts across my desk and beyond just calling to be collaged; the papers are weighted by heavy treasures (the ones destined for assemblage work) and I would like to create in the garden too. Of course there is a half finished patchwork quilt in the lounge and a mosaic that only needs the grout in the shed - then there is the UFO box.
Am I complaining? No! It is bliss - a surfeit of ideas can never be a problem. Have you seen the work of Richard Salley? His jewellery, assemblage and mixed media - all calling out to me. There are some things I'd like to try ...
For now, this bracelet is going to a new friend whose words warm my day. I dyed the buttons (they were white and clear) just for this piece - however, I have a lot of lovely 'spares'. I dye my buttons by boiling them in an old pot with a sprinkle of Dylon powder and salt. The different buttons take up the dye to varying degrees giving a whole range of shades within the colour.
Have a peace filled Sunday, as we celebrate the resurrection.
