Eco-Friendly. Handmade. Vintage recycled textile necklace. A vintage textile assemblage necklace collaged from recycled, vintage and antique elements to create layers & textures in French style.

 

Length -19 inches – 49 cm.

ABOUT
I created ” Charlotte”, from vintage cloth, hand – sewn and wrapped with vintage satin ribbons, crochet scraps and metallic silk threads. The necklace is embellished in places with Victorian bone beads, faux pearls and a 1800’s antique buckle up one side. This buckle was dug from the goldmines in Victoria, Australia.

Another buckle, Victorian, lay below, together with, a decorative metal fan shape with leaf embossing, a vintage glass bead in rose, a vintage, “Mother of Pearl” embellishment with an antique French doily attached to a hammered found tin, cap. Finished with a touch here and there of doily scap and antique tulle netting in antique cream.

Fabric Dyeing. Textiles & Paper.

I’m so hooked on dyeing lately, so, here is my latest batch of cold water dyed fabrics and papers. I’ve had these dyes since the 70’s and they still worked really well. I was able to keep diluting the dye bath to get very subtle tints. I’ve also been doing a bit of experimenting with rust dyeing and absolutely love it

On my other blog Outlook8studio I have a tutorial to share with you on rust dyeing

Have fun!
