Well, I'm in the last camp. Fabric was my first love. I learned to sew at the age of 12. For about 15 years, I made nearly all of my own clothes including my bathing suits, lingerie, underwear and my husband's jeans. Even though I haven't done that much sewing in a long time, I still love fabric. That's why I'm so excited about the sari silk I've been carrying at Painting with Fire. But now I've just received a shipment of Japanese Chirimen Cording! Find out more at my website.

Here's my "Evil Eye" bracelet with chirimen fabric and "groovy cord" in a color called "Hydrangea." The beads are ceramic that have been torch-fired with Sky transparent enamel. One side of the lentil bead has a "blue eye" and the other side has a "red eye." You can find this piece at my website too!
Thanks for visiting! Have a great day! Barbara
