On My Desk...

Okay - strictly speaking, this is not on my desk today...but it was just over a month ago! I've been busy sanding logs today, but I need a bit of textile solace, so I thought I'd show you this.
This wrist cuff was a custom order for someone who loves turquoise, orange and textures...so, I piled on the colour, added as many different fabrics as I could possibly squeeze into the space, and sprinkled over some faceted beads, to catch the light. I love the bold colour combination, and the tufts of silk.

I was SO tempted to keep it!! If only it hadn't been made for a wonderfully dainty wrist, I think I would have done!

Pop over now to kootoyoo's blog for real desklife activity!

Love the cuff! I would have wanted to keep it as well...You have a wonderful sense of style and color! I also love hearing about life in the forest...sanding logs sounds appropriate! Camilla

Just came upon your blog. Love your work. The photograpyhy of your work is super. Want to share your technique? Do you do your own photograghy? I ask because it's not easy to show fiber work at its best.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. From your response, I take it that your photographs outside. Do you put your work inside a box or something? If willing, could you expand on your set up? I'm such an amateur at photograpghy. Your picture taking is just marvelous. It shows your marveleous work marveleously. I know, a little over the top. Thanks,
