art textiles to cherish
This one of a kind textile brooch is an individual small weaving, inspired by moonlight over the sea on the Isle of Tiree. You can wear it with a variety of outfits, or to decorate a shawl or bag. It would make a lovely gift or a treat for you to treasure.
This special brooch was woven by hand on a tiny loom, using cotton threads and indigo dyed cloth strips.
The brooch measures 4.1 x 4.5 cm approx. (1.6 x 1.8 inches approx.) and weighs 3 grams (0.1 oz). It is backed with a tiny piece of handmade felt.
This listing is for the single brooch shown alone. It comes mounted on white card. Postage to the UK is free and the item will be sent 2nd class signed for, or you can pay for expedited delivery at the checkout. Orders to the US will be sent by International Tracked delivery.
I'm an artist maker in west Wales, creating with my spinning wheel and loom, looking for the beautiful in the everyday and seeking to tell small, slow stories in cloth.
The warmth of wool and the lustre of silk, the play of colour, the rhythms of the day and the fragments of memory - these are the elements that inspire me to create. I make scarves, textile jewellery, handmade cards, and woven abstract art cloth both framed and unframed. I also create handspun yarn, blended fibres for spinning and creative inspiration packs.
Some of my items were made when I lived in Scotland on the Isle of Tiree, before coming to Wales.
