It feels weird to talk about jewelry after that but I do find that having a 'creative outlet' helps to take ones mind off things and I did want to share how I've been going with the weaving.
The photo above shows a sample of the weave as it progresses. I've used leather thong green to separate my first section of fabric from the next. The great thing about cuffs is that, once you've warped the loom, they are relatively quick to weave.
Here's the finished cuff, embellished with some wooden disc beads and an old coin. I used a slit weave technique (the same thing used on kilims) to create the button hole. I wanted a primitive feel so I kept the patterning simple and quite 'blocky'. I'll be interested to see if it gets any favorites when I list it.
I think I'm going to try something much less tribal for my next piece - perhaps in one colour.
'til next time...
