Colour Inspiration

I am currently really inspired by Moroccan rugs and richly hued and opalescent gemstones. My latest woven scarfs will incorporate bright primary colors in the dyed yarn as well as abstract appliqué. I have been experimenting with fringe weaving which adds tons of texture.

Back on Etsy

With maternity leave coming up soon I decided to re-kindle my art and design creating and get back online with Etsy.
It may prove difficult to weave, collage and arrange jewellery to be made all while caring for a newborn but I'm up for the challenge.

Selvedge Craft Fair

I was really excited to discover that Selvedge, an independent craft magazine from the U.K. hold two craft fairs annually in Chelsea, London. I am aiming to have a booth there this year during the fall show. The dates are Oct 31st - Nov1st. My loom is arriving from California soon and I have many ideas for new pieces including shawls, blankets and cushions!

Almost a year since last post!

I cant believe how time flies! I am now in Lindfield, West Sussex after a major move with hubby and puppy in tow! It is simply lovely here, the countryside is divine and I am so inspired to make new artwork and textiles. We now have a garden, which is a dream come true and I have already planted window boxes and cleaned out the old shed.

Latest Collage Artworks

Its been a busy week! These are my latest collage artworks. The black and white,'Dark Dream', one was created for my 'secret santa' gift. I used an actual dreamcatcher and surrealist imagery. The second one, 'Garden of Light', was made for my mother in law as a Christmas gift. I wanted to make her something bright and meaningful. I used seed pearls on the goddess statue.

Venetian Masks for the Ball

We are attending a holiday party this year and the theme is masquerade! We found these masks online from Carta Alta and love that we have a 'his' and 'hers' version of this baroque inspired mask.

TOTO Jones Jewelry

The past few months I have been very busy designing jewelry for my own line. I have written the content for the new website and have obtained almost all the supplies I need for the first prototypes! I am really excited about seeing my vision come to life. The designs are mainly long pendants that function as inspiration pieces for the wearer. They will hold a variety of gems as well as engraved designs, all placed in sterling silver and 18k gold. I will post them, along with the new site as soon as they are ready!
