My studio is smaller than I had in Cyprus, but perfectly functional and the daylight job as a painter is continuing as before. In the evenings I'm in relaxed mode with thread, yarn, fabric, beads, needles and hooks again and I have early signs of a new wearable art collection to show.
I'm being inspired by my love of cuff bracelets. On the left is an example of one I made way back. It's quite wide and warm to wear which is why I think this style is most suited to colder weather.
But I also feel I want a style of cuff bracelet I can wear any time of the year whatever the weather. So I'm aiming for a lighter, leaner feel and a chic, cool look! And hope you like what you see.
These new cuffs are hand stitched and embroidered using stranded cotton threads on even weave linen fabrics. They will fit a variety of wrist sizes by means of a clasp which fastens at any place along the chain extension. They have individual characteristics and embellishments which are fully shown with photos and descriptions in my Etsy shop.
