My most cherished possession

What is my handmade possession I cherish the most....

Here is my answer

"A while ago I was cleaning out my supply closet when I came across pile after pile of yarn. I knew a friend of mine had a knitting project so I gave her the many pounds of yarn expecting nothing in return… but after only a few weeks she presents me with an absolutely beautiful knitted and crochet blanket. She had put her own project aside to make this enormous blanket for me with some of the yarn I’d given her. I adore it and it is now my very most prized possession. "

Fish and verdigris copper pendant for bike inner tube necklace (or any necklace)

I wanted to add some color to the black bike inner tube necklaces, and created this pendant out of a fish and copper with verdigris patina. You can easily attach it the days you are in the mood for a little more than black.

Bicycle inner tube leaf necklage, handcut.

Last night I couldn't sleep. I had a scissor and a bike inner tube near by, and I began to cut. You know, sometimes when you are just not in the mood something happens and out came this beautiful necklace full of leaves.

As you will know by now I love summer, and I love flowers. My recycled bike inner tube flowers have some colors now too. A green colored leather cord gives those cute flowers a little extra. The flowers can be mowed around, that means this necklace can change and you have many different looks in one.
