[behind the scenes] i’ve already started playing with my new loom. been reading up about plain weave, claps weft, weft faced and warp faced weaving… there are a lot of possibilities out there and i’m feeling lit! you guys know what that means, right? that means new models of woven goodness coming straight at you in 2018!
Found these beauties a few weeks ago. The boat shuttle is antique and handmade. But it needs love: there is no varnish and it’s quite rough so it also needs a good sanding. The funny looking rag shuttle is also antique and handmade. It’s fit for use, but it’ll be just a decoration. The round “container” can only hold about a yard of rag. So I’ll keep on using “my not at all pretty but totally practical” rag shuttles. That tiny one is a pirn. I thought it was a tapestry bobbin. Oh well!

| behind the scenes | I'm into off centered / monochromatic pictures these days... Just a little experimental phase i suppose ;)

[behind the scenes] my new loom is all in solid wood – except for the reed, that is in metal - and it’s a great size for small projects. fits perfectly on my lap too! its also versatile, because I can weave cloth or tapestries. the rear of the frame has a removable indented bar that can be used as a makeshift cloth rolling beam
[behind the scenes] my birthday came early this year ;) I got myself (yet another) loom! I think this one is my 7th 😜 in my defense, all of my looms are different from one another [behind the scenes] birthday came early this year: got myself another loom! this little guy is a vintage toy, a Spears weaving loom, dating from the 50s, built in the UK. it had never been used! 😍 apart from a slight musty smell on the yarn it came with, it’s in perfect shape, even the box is mint
[behind the scenes – 2/2] But this is the first time I actually see the titles of the movies - usually the movie header is too damaged for me to use. I found out - by making a _really not safe for work_ search on the internet - that those two movies are what you could call “classic” bondage movies. Get your pair - if you dare - here https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/501910182/edgy-earrings-8mm-film-earrings-adults
i accidentaly purchased 2 reels of porno movies a few years back - my guess is a good as yours, but i suspect the mister hid those films from the misses in unmarked film canisters. and that, kids, is how i started selling adult film jewelry!
This is my contribution to today! A pair of vintage map earrings. The shipping envelope is also made out of a map (now aint that quite the concept lol ;) and the gift box is hand stamped, complete with fabric pattern paper in lieu of tissue paper.
Another day, another pair of skull and bones ☠ earrings sold. Get yours for Halloween. 🎃 Or just because. 👉 Limited edition. Less than 10 pairs left! . This time around I’m sending them out in full color a map envelope, inserted into a stitched anatomical drawing gift bag. . The map is from a not so old atlas, but the anatomical drawings come from a vintage series of books called Atlas of Surgery, published by Mosby in the 60s. . Gore is the new black ;)
