We were so thrilled to receive a commission request from the lovely Helen from The Wool Kitchen to make her a The Wool Kitchen (TWK) necklace, based on one of her balls of hand dyed wool!
Here’s the finished thing, modelled by Helen this morning! : )
Here’s a close up:
Helen sent us a photo of one of her bestselling yarns, to base our design on:
And below is the preliminary paper mock-up we sent her with a little action shot of the tricky holes being cut with a hand saw (easier than on the mechanical fretsaw!).
We love seeing photos on Helen’s Instagram account (thewoolkitchen) of her in her kitchen hand dying and making the balls from the skeins of freshly dyed wool…..we especially love it when she models one of our necklaces as she works! ; )
And we were so excited to go and “touch the wool” in the flesh! when she had an open studio event as part of the E17 Art Trail a few months ago…here are some photos we took on a lovely sunny Saturday, of her wares for sale in her lovely garden:
If you are knitting mad this is the place to be next Saturday! You can buy tickets in advance for the fair for £8 – or it’s £10 on the door.
