Tania spends lots of time on the banks of the Thames at low tide. Here she finds shards of ancient pottery and glass, and makes them into beautiful jewellery. You really must look at her blog. I just couldn't resist posting this picture of her work to get you interested.
So the rules of the Kreativ Blogger Award are that I have to link back to the person who awarded me, pass this award on to 7 other blogs that I enjoy reading, and also reveal 7 facts about myself. Actually its a great way to discover and connect with interesting and creative people around the globe. So my seven facts are:
1. I have always loved making, stitching, drawing. It's a necessary part of my life.
2. I run marathons.
3. I have a degree in Fashion and Textiles.
4. I just got a garden studio - hurrah!
5. In my London garden, I grow vegetables and keep chickens.
6. I love being out in the open air, surrounded by the elements.
7. I long for more travel, especially to return to the desert of Rajasthan.
Now listing the blogs has been tricky, I dip in and out of all sorts of blogs, but here are a few that I love to look at:
Hens Teeth Viv paints, stitches, and embroiders, and I lust after her needle cases and bags.
Abigail Brown Abigail is a textile artist, illustrator and print designer. I just love her amazing birds that she stitches, and when someone left me a little windfall I just had to buy myself one. GORGEOUS!
wild acre Belinda designs and makes jewellery in silver, inspired by the natural landscape around her home. She tries to tread lightly on the world by working with ethical and re-claimed materials whenever she can. She also has the most amazing garden full of flowers, and you cannot fail to be lifted when you see the gorgeous pictures of the flowers she posts.
Stipje Can't understand a word, but I love how it looks!
Julie Whitmore Pottery Hmmnn I know she's already been given this award, but everyone should see Julies pottery and smile.
Holly Wilcox I love to dip in and look at Holly's delicate jewellery.
Nina Bagley Nina is a jewellery designer and mixed media artist. She lives in the mountains and writes from the heart. There is so much to look at and absorb on Nina's blog, and I always leave it feeling calm and serene.
A diverse collection, a feast for the senses, and an insight into what makes me tick. Enjoy. x
