Still playing, creating tiny green worlds. Some bitty tiny mushrooms have appeared in the moss. Can anyone tell me about these? They are about 1/4 inch tall.
The people in the above terrarium are very tiny, at bout 1 1/8 inches tall. I tried it with some larger figures, but they seemed too big – at their height of 1 and 1/2 inches. See below.
This is a rough photo of a terrarium I worked on this morning. More photos can be found at Sanctuary Without Walls.
Below are some photos of tiny terrarium pendants, with a quarter to show scale. Some of these were for sale at the Real Food Market Co-op for the holidays, which is why some have chains and others do not (yet).
Who thought I’d be gardening in this frigid weather?!
As some of you may know, I have not been able to work at my sewing machine for many months now. However, my hands have not been idle. Today I took some of my handwork to our local food co-op. These consist of small things I can work on (usually propped up with pillows!). In these short sessions, I’ve had great fun making “jewelry” items from unusual objects. And it’s good to use the “stuff” I’ve collected, giving it new form.
Below is a bracelet I sold today. First, using a knitting spool, I made a denim-colored cord from blue wool, then used beads and springs, (as in hardware from your toolbox), and finished it off with tassels.
Here’s a teaser. Next post: the tiny terrarium necklace.
