There is a forest of trees in my lounge right now: 25 wire and bead creations about to be boxed up and delivered to the marketing department of the company I used to work for, as a special order.
The trees were made with the help of Hilton and Shelton Marimo, and then fixed to silver bases with cascades of tiny stones by moi. It was a lot of work but a great challenge. No two trees are the same. A rather lovely way of representing, I think, the individuality of each of the clients who will be receiving one. Not to mention also a lovely way of supporting local business.
Local is lekker. Local handmade is even more lekker!
