Forest Fruit

I just finished taking pictures of a new design. I made this 'Forest Fruit' necklace for the European Street Team Challenge, hosted by Dinafragola. The theme was FOOD.
Dinafragola has a cute Kawai shop. where I bought lately these cool bunny earrings for my eldest daughter (Happy she was!). Check her blog here, to see the other FOOD entries.

More about my newest design now:
I made the felted pebbles when we were on holiday in France.

Felting those pebbles is really fun, especially, when you can do it outside, sitting on a terrace, under a big Catalpa tree with a cool glass of selfmade ice tea near you, while the kids are playing in the swimming pool and daddy is taking a little nap in the sun :-)
For the green pebbles I was inspired by the acorns my son Briek collected near our gite in France, and the green combined so good with the lavender in the garden of our host.

Back home I combined the green and lilac felted pebbles with distressed wooden beads and handmade silk beads with a mustard golden shine.
The necklace is already available in my shop!
