From millefiori to textile.

Can you see my millefiori canes?

Recently I was occupied with a great project of home textile design. Friends of mine from the textile industry have been asking me for some time to translate my polymer clay work to textile and design a series of tablecloth collection. I must say that this was a challenge for me because there are some ground rules that I had to follow; one of them is to use only 5 colors, not 6, not 7, only five! Well… this rule did not stop me :-) 

Textile design is very dear to me because for many years I worked as a fashion designer and I love all that is connected to fabric and such, so this opportunity was very exiting for me.

Last days of summer

It is getting a bit chilly in the evenings these days, but it is still very warm and kind of summery here. So it is a fantastic opportunity to say farewell to these last summer days and to introduce a new collection of hair pins sets for girls or girls at heart.

I used 3 hair pins in each set; on one of them I've attached a slice of millefiori flower cane, on the second I've made a little cabochon and glued it in a lace setting and the third pin got a flower applique.
