Working on my Second Prize winning necklace inspired me to do more knotting work.
As a rule, I won’t work with cotton thread. It’s to prone to breaking – with wear & oils from your body, it decays too easily.
But I struck on the idea of knotting together 3 or 4 lengths – to add strength & bulk to the finished piece.
I’m keeping them simple – a glass (or some other) pendant & the cotton.
Here’s the piece I’ve been working on this week.
The twisted glass pendant – an absolutely divine combination of blue, green & silver…
and the lengths of embroidery cotton…
It’s repetetive & a little time-consuming, but great to work on in the ads when you are watching television (there’s an uncut diamond).
