Folk on the rocks festival

Materials: delica beads, tanned caribou hide

Last sunday my friend Laura and I shared a booth, selling our handmade goodies alongside quite a few other local artist'. Positively inspiring! I'm always so fascinated by watching other artist' at work; in viewing thier different/similar approaches and techniques with similar/different mediums and material.
This here is a small branch that Laura had found and stuck into a pottery mold, used to hang our jewelery from! Such a good idea! I might just do that also; for hanging my own stuff at home!
