I’ve been offline more than on due to holiday things, I hope you guys are all having a warm winter so far!
Here are a few things I’ve been working on. They’re all for sale at http://paperanji.etsy.com I think.
All of these new pairs are listed at https://www.etsy.com/shop/paperanji
I finished a few on commission as well, this past week. I love it when I get to make things for people.
Most of these are beadweaving on top of threadwrapping with some extra stone or piece as a focal point.
I use wood as a base material- the coils or hoops are all from companies that make safe body jewelry (I’ve used tawapa’s stuff a lot as a base to work on) and are all wood. I like wood.
I’ve also made a few smaller, stick-earring style pieces on horn.
And I have started pulling out the stones I’ve collected and drilled, the feather batch, and the bones and such that I’ve been amassing over the last few years. So the next sets of these will be a bit more extravagant…
These are made from sawa wood coils as a base, with wooden beads, hemp threadwrapping, bamboo, seeds, nontoxic chalk, and sandstone pieces I found on the Alsea River. The stones look heavy, but in fact they’re very light.
These are lighter than some of the more simple, plainly-beaded pairs I have made.
You should be at least 00 gauge to wear them. These are wood coils, not made to use in unhealed piercings or ears that you are stretching. Weights are for healed, settled holes!
