Something Old, Something New


I like to use recycled materials in my work as much as possible, both in order to reduce the environmental impact of my work, and also because I enjoy the challenge of creating something new by reinventing the old.

However, I have also developed a love of all things Swarovski, Freshwater Pearls and semi-precious stones, and through the combination of both of these themes, my "Something Old, Something New" theme has developed!

These pieces combine recycled yarn and fabrics with sparkly Swarovski crystals. The Little fabric discs on the necklace and brooches was cut from fabric that once formed a  display in a shoe shop window!

This necklace is the first I've made with the little fabric discs, and it's an idea that I'm going to work on and develop
 I'm taking these pieces to the Warner Textile Museum shop in Braintree next week, along with some more bits and pieces!
