PJE025B - Brown and Yellow Swirl Crochet Hoop Earring
I love the swirl pattern. There’s something natural and spiritual and ethnic about it all at the same time. Those who know say that time and space and all things move in this pattern of the snake. Maybe that’s why I can’t get enough of it. Hope you feel the same.
PT003 - Red and Black Hexagonal Tam with Hexagon Inset with Cowry
I think one of my first hats was a tam. It reminds me of the French, and of artists. So I decided to create this grown-up version. The tam is double thread for warmth and in the center there is a cowry shell (my trademark) surrounded by a raised hexagram. Simple, but with a little umph in the details.
This is a cossack hat that I made a while ago. It’s made of a bold orange and purple combination, and it’s really big and floppy. If you can see yourself in it, you can have it for $25 instead of the original $45!
Hat size 24 1/2 ” 6” Tall 9 1/2” Diameter across the top
PJC004 - Red and Black 4” Crochet Cuff with Leather, Stone and Bead
Remember the leather cuffs of days gone past? Back in the day we would have our names on the and zodiac signs an whatnot. Well I just got a load of new supplies, and I decided to see what happens if I combined crochet, leather, beads and stone. This was my first piece.
This is named for the Queen that I dreamt it up for. It incorporates the colors of the sea in a octagon shape, topped off with a cowry. There are baby cables running down the sides toward the roll up brim. You can sit it atop your head, or roll the brim down over your ears when the weather calls for it.
Hat size 24 ” 4” Tall (measured rolled) 8” Diameter across the top
I love EVERYTHING mudcloth, and these beads are no exception. They remind me of REAL mudcloth; not the mass produced stuff but the old-fashioned, done by hand stuff. They are heavy too. This necklace has black and gold plated beads on a black and brown crocheted chain.
“Dwennimmen”, or Ram’s Horns” is the Adinkra symbol that represents Strength of Body Mind and Spirit. This brass pendant is surrounded by peach colored faux pearls and coppery beads. The closure is a gold plated toggle on a chain of copper and gold colored crochet thread.
