When the weather gets tough, the tough get weaving.

Here on the OBX it’s dreary and rainy today. It’s a good studio day to weave. The softly falling rain is a nice background sound for concentration. The air smells clean too.

I’m working on two weaving projects today. On the left is the band for 2 casual d-ring ladies belts and on the right is a commission for wool medieval garters for a friend who gives them for poetry competition prizes.  I am happy to accept weaving commissions. On average, 2.5 yds of inkle band is about $25-$30 depending on the cost of the yarn. I can also weave up to 9 yard lengths. Just drop me a line at martelvonc@yahoo.com with length, width, colors and material. I accept PayPal.

Veil Pins are here!

I am now making veil and dress pins in glass and semi-precious beads. They are 1 3/4″ long and generally come in sets of 3 or 6 pins. Some of the materials are freshwater pearls, garnets, adventurine, amethyst, jade, Czech glass and more. More are being added all the time.

You can find them here! Martelvonc on Etsy
