Not sure why, but when I first made a multi-coloured wire crochet cuff it reminded me of work by Faberge.

The first cuff was crocheted in tinned copper with freshwater pearls. It was one of the first mesh bracelets I made. It sold at a craft fair (I think – record keeping was a little sketchy then) but the name hung around.

The next “Faberge” was in copper with an even more exotic mix of freshwater pearls. I liked it so much that the cuff was recreated three times.

Then a customer mentioned she would be interested in one in silver wire, so I made one in argentium sterling and LOVED the combination of shiny wire with pearls.

…. and then I went back to tinned copper ….. but tried a string of multi-gemchips. Voila! A new “Faberge” is born.

I’ll be spending mine in the gift shop at Port Moody arts centre (come on down for those very last minute gifts).
Also thinking of going to see “Holmes” at the local cinema this evening. Any takers?

…. more cufflinks?

Well, that’s my opinion so my week has been full of reaching out to other venues to market/sell my wares.

and I haven’t been creating much stuff as a consequence.

Hopefully one will lead onto the other.

I will be teaching a wire crochet class at Port Moody Arts Centre starting this Wednesday. We will cover basic stitches, chain and mesh. Students will create their own bracelet and choker necklace set, plus a mesh cuff and wire beads.
The class is suitable for beginners and novices. Initial supplies will be provided.
Classes run for three Wednesdays, starting at 7pm on 3rd February, and cost $65 plus supplies. There are still a few places left – please call 604 931 2008 ext. 101 to register.
