OOAK Textile Wallhanging made up of three sections joined by fine ribbons of silk.  I’ve called this one Muted Earth as it reflects both the land and the water that flows through and over it.

Using fibre art as your wall decor brings a warmth to the room by   combining texture, colour and depth. I make my wall hangings from recycled beads and jewellery, by using the ends of the alpaca and wool yarns from my weaving and recycling the offcuts of quilting fabrics that would otherwise be wasted. Raw fleece, silk ribbons and mercerised cotton in tiny amounts ties the pieces together to make a finished product that I hope you love as much as I loved the making of.

Some time ago I purchased some feather light fine silk ribbon from a fair. I had no idea what I would make with it but I knew it was too beautiful to pass by. It sat in its box while ideas moved around quietly in the back of my mind until I finally felt ready to use it. The ribbons are far too delicate for mistakes. Even while it was on the loom I didn’t really know how it would look and once off the loom I could see it wasn’t finished. So once more it sat there for a while till I was ready to tackle it.
The weight of the glass beads provide a wonderful contrast to the lightness of the ribbon and the mix of blues and browns always seems to add a calmness to the space around it.
I am happy with the final result and hope it finds a beautiful space in your home or office for it to shine.
Measures 61cm (24 inches) in length, including the fringe, and hangs on a dowel rod 58cm (23inches) long
