I've been making these Boundaround Necklaces for myself for many years, slowly refining my technique and style. When I found a range of beautiful cotton fabric by Moda I started to make more.
Strips of the colourful fabric are wound around wooden rings, then a ribbon is made from the same fabric and finished with a stainless steel bayonet clasp. The result is light weight and easy to wear adding a pop of colour to your outfit.
The pendant comes in a smart box ready for giving and to use for storage.
About 2minty studio
Hello! We are a husband and wife team at 2minty studio.
Mostly it all started when we moved house and had a real studio, on site, with plenty of space. It was amazing and very quickly we both wanted to act on creative ideas which had been bubbling in the background for a while.
Girts, a retired architectural photographer, has always been intrigued by hand-built ceramics, the possibilities with shape, texture, glaze and decoration just really engage him. So a new kiln came to the studio and all sorts of things began to disappear from the house, empty bottles to use as moulds, kitchen scales, and lengths of material to create textured clay all found their way there. He shapes the clay by hand rather than using a potters wheel.
When the kiln is opened after a firing and the waiting for it to cool down is over, the lid is lifted with great excitement. Will it be triumph or tragedy? Thankfully, usually the former.
My paper weaving started some years ago when I was doing test prints of abstract photos I had taken for book publishers to use on their covers. The fine art paper was so lovely and velvety I couldn't throw them away. Later I came back to them and cut one into strips, and the rest just followed naturally.
I love how the colours and textures interact when woven, it's quite a slow progress but I love to watch it take shape. It's exacting and methodical work but I find it relaxing. I have quite a paper stash, lots of old maps which I love, old books and shop catalogues. Always the paper is acid free and matt.
Recently I've really enjoyed making something that is three dimensional and the cotton rope bowls have become addictive. So many ways to decorate, and an infinite number of possible shapes, all so useful. In our house, every prototype bowl gets filled very quickly!
