Branch Hooks

I made these branch hooks out of a scrap piece of wood and a bunch of collected twigs.
I carved off the bark and flattened the backs of each twig with a knife and glued
the bare branches to the board. They can't support a whole ton of weight,
but they are perfect for hanging jewelry and other light things.

Markings

taking pleasure in simple black and white - pen and ink markings.

Geometric Pendants

I am thrilled to post about this new collection of geometric beads I have been working on.
They are carved out of polymer clay. The colours are all hand-mixed acrylic paint,
so each colour combination is completely unique and one-of-a-kind.

It's been a while since I worked with so much colour,
so I am really excited with how these turned out. They are for sale in my shop.

Peas in a Pod + Notebook

A pair of sugar snap peas in pods - for sale in my shop.

And a new notebook I bound - this time just for myself!
Made out of over 20 different kinds of paper using a coptic binding stitch
so that the spine lays nice and flat when open.

Notebook

I made this notebook as a birthday present for a friend.
It is filled with over 15 different types of paper - blank paper, lined paper, grid paper,
tracing paper, card stock, and sprinkled with pages from magazines and art gallery pamphlets.
I hand-cut and bound the pages together and made the cover out of cardboard and an old paper bag.
I am totally in love with the textures of all the different papers,
and I like the idea of using a notebook like this
where inspiration is allowed to flow from the paper itself.
