I find myself giddy and inspired by vintage textiles and findings. A little package of goodies like this... quilt scraps and buttons... my mind dreams up all sorts of things! I can't part with even the smallest scrap of vintage quilt fabric, often feedsack and always darling. I ponder the history of each piece and feel honored to give them a "new history" through my accessories.
My leather collage necklaces are such a treat ~ candy to the eye! They feature layers of vintage loveliness... a leather background sewn together with felted wool, a vintage quilt scrap and a vintage flower finding and bead center. I love making them because no two are ever alike.
