Then, I heard the familiar sound of more than envelopes being put in the mailbox (it's a gift...or I order too much online!) So I high tailed myself out to investigate....and look what found it's way to me...
Nothing like a little shimmer to brighten your Monday morning! These interesting beauties are gold silk worm cocoons from Larkspur Funny Farm on Etsy.
Of course, I had to play with these immediately! How could I resist?
On Gilded Wings earrings. My own polymer clay lentils wrapped with golden silk cocoon, with brass textured beads, copper findings and a trio of "grungy" pearls.
And the start of a necklace (which is rare for me, as I tend not to create "matchy" pieces.)
That's all I had time for before the gaggle of girls demanded my attention! I also ordered some hand dyed silk cocoons & silk rods...so stay tuned!
