For me, colour and texture rule and most of the inspiration feeding my imagination comes from the natural world. I see knitting as art, as viable as any other, and no matter what the tool or preferred palette, in human hands, magic happens.

Bead Kits

I have many passions, one being beads. I collect them wherever I go, always seeking out the unique, the most interesting, stones with special finishes or inclusions. I've been known to barter with Berbers in Morocco, commission raku in California and forage for stones in the Grand Bazarre in Istanbul.  My cup (bead drawer) floweth over. Time to de-stash.

These packs are compiled by color with a mix of accents perfect for embellishing knitwear or even for beaders looking for a special accent or two. Check here regulary as the offerings will always be changing.

Turkish Tassel Solo
This tassel holds central court on the original cluster of three with the bottom two making up the Turkish Tassel Duo pack.

All handmade and antique, it's a stunning addition to a shawl bottom or to so many other creative projects. Brass and cotton cording.

Price: $25.00

These are the real thing: genuine antigue Turkish tassels hand-maid once used for ceremonial purposes. The caps and fittings are brass with black beads with fuschia stitching hand embroidered over black cords. Add them to shawl ends or to festoon any object! This order comes with two matching tassels.
