Hoover and a tweak........

Well my large moth 'Oonah' is back from her adventures in Anthropologie in London..and with a quick hoover and tweak shes back on the wall above my sewing machine where she lives. I get asked whats my favourite thing I ever made a lot and and its her ....this moth.

Large..........






















Today I'm working on moths ....some small some big..actually the biggest Ive ever made for sale. The large ones are hard to make, getting the stance of them is tricky when you make larger ones as they become heavier. 
Once they are finished Ill give updates of when they will be for sale.
4-5 days approx .....Med moths will be £149 and the large £295
These are going into my Esty shop...

The large ones are roughly 42cm x 24cm to give you an idea.

Glass and tin...........























Broken wine glasses, a little sandpaper on any sharp edges, rusty tins, tiny plates, old saucers as bases. 
The tiniest scrap of fabric,plant sample or tiny photograph is suddenly given a precious importance. 
Made from items that are generally thrown away. A lonely chess piece or stray bead simply glued on top.
Job done.
