Fibre arts inspired jewellry

July 28, 2011

A few pieces of weaving and spinning related jewellry –

The silver (needs polishing) shuttle was a special order hand-made by a local Salt Spring Island silversmith for guild members.  Unfortunately I cannot remember nor read the stamp of who it was and don’t want to get the name wrong.    The wooden shuttle earrings I bought at a weaving conference – again I have no idea of who made them.   The pendant is from the Guild of Canadian  Weavers, the colourful pin is by Sheila O’Hara and the spinning wheel was from Louet.

I also have a Complex Weavers pin – somewhere…

    I’m pretty sure those wooden shuttle earrings are from Glimakra ( as in the village in Sweden) I was sent a gift of a pair by a Swedish friend who lived in Lund.

    I think we’re drawn to to fibre related ‘bling’ like magpies!

    I bought the little wooden shuttle, though I got one on a keychain, at the Vav booth at Convergence last year. I wish I knew where I could get more so if you do find out, let me know please.

    They’re wonderful! The closest I have is bunny earrings and a sheep pin. Love what you found.
