Making Thistles

In the photo above I was grinding oak galls for the first layer of dye. The 'thistledown' had been carefully masked to stay white.

And now they are ready: a necklace and a pair of earrings. In the shop tomorrow.

There are other things in the works that I'm really excited about... A feather from a phoenix? Autumn fires? Pomegranates?

A good weekend to you.
