The warp contains white organic cotton with some novelty yarns and is woven with a Japanese wool crepe yarn for the weft that “collapses” 30% when placed in water. This collapses the weave into a fabric that stretches and has life.
This pendant has a dichroic glass “jewel” that I formed in the kiln and the silver is crafted from Art Metal Clay. A silver clay like material that you can mold like clay but when heated in a kiln everything but the silver burns off.
I enjoy making lampworked beads. There is definitely a thrill to playing with fire. These earrings are made with sterling silver wire and are a brain challage in how to put them on…at least for the first couple of times.
