I love mixed media, especially if it is taking bits and bobs that might otherwise get thrown away and making beautiful art out of them. Another benefit is that I have a penchant for very blingy things that in their whole form could be a bit garish, but in little bits are just enough to make something boho-fancy.
However, none of these were super intricate. So when I saw that Marina Rios of Fanciful Devices, a master of bits and bobs beauty, had a textile cuff kit available with all kinds of goodies, I could not resist. The finished example photos look so wonderful, and it will be fun to work on making something that I hope is even partially as cool and beautiful. I thought I’d share the kit with you.
Whoo! That’s a lot, right? I’m excited to try this out. I love art beads, but I am also getting back into vintage and bits, which I loved before art beads. This kit very much reminds me of going antiquing (particularly in Cedarburg, Wisconsin) back in the day and finding bit after bit that I loved. I didn’t always get the stuff because what to do with it? But these bits have a purpose. I look forward to working on this project.
