workshop@Mieke Recour

About 2 weeks ago I attended a workhop given by Mieke Recour :
working with silk fibers (sieraden aan een zijden draadje)
The material and technique where totally new for me.
She gave us an introduction on coloring the fibers, shaping them into tiny flowers and round beads in the first session.

The second session (one week later) was used to make the
actual necklace and earrings.
She teached us how to bow silver into earrings, knot the cords and make a pretty necklace.

I enjoyed this workshop very much as Mieke is such a nice, calm and patient teacher.
The jewelry she makes is every so light to wear and has
very rich coloring as she tends to color the silk herself.
(she was also participating in the 1m² event)
If you are quick, you can still attend the workshop she is giving
next week.  

This necklace was not included in the workshop, but as I had
one flower left and some fimo beads, I made this one extra.

Thank you Mieke for sharing your knowledge !
