Two Hands

Brand new bangle design just painted today.
The design is based off one of my old paintings.
Two hands wrap around the bangle, lightly touching each other.
I have joined their wrists at the back where I plan to have some text.
But what to write? Im really not sure.
If you have any sugestions I would love to hear them!
If I cant come up with anything I will leave it blank for the buyer to personalise.
I think this my even be better as it will make the bangle more meaningful to its owner.
Let me know what you think : ).

In the air tonight

Ive been a sick little girl these last few days. To make things worse I'm being quarantined, my boyfriend is in the midst of his exams so im not allowed to see him till I'm better. Oh how I just want a hug. So I have been moping around the house watching pride and prejudice, dreaming and sketching the lives of anonymous ladies.

Whispering Wind

Hand painted wooden bangle

At Spotlight last week I came across these plain wooden bangles and thought them perfect to turn into mini wearable art. This was my prototype, agonizing and tedious to paint but I am quite pleased with the outcome. Only just finished painting so it's still wet. When it dries i might fix up a few little bits and give it a good coat of varnish so the paint doesn't chip. Her face is actually cream but it comes up white in the photos.

What do you think? I might make a couple more and see if they sell. I'm also thinking of doing a few with text.

I have soo many ideas buzing around in my head at the moment but not enought hands to make it all with.

Assignments are done, its time to get creating.
I am currently trying to build up a nice collection of stock before I open my Etsy shop. These here are two new handmade singlets. Each is a ribbed singlet decorated with bows and frills made from new and vintage fabrics, they are designed to go with my pinafores which i will post pictures of soon.
Let me know what you think :-).
