Woven Book Sleeve by Stephanie Jane


Woven Book Sleeve

by Stephanie Jane


£8 plus shipping
Buy at Etsy

Made in Devon

"This book sleeve will protect your current paperback book from damage while you are not reading. It is great for travellers, commuters or shoppers - anytime you might need to slip a book into a larger suitcase, tote bag or briefcase and don't want to discover dog-eared corners and creased covers later on! My book sleeves are designed to fit standard sized paperback books, but can of course also be used for appropriately sized tablets, journals or simply to keep knick-knacks corralled.

The Striped Heart Sleeve was hand-woven by me from blue and grey toned acrylic yarn. I love the depth created by the coloured and its extra interest provided by occasional orange and white flecks. The covered warp threads are purple acrylic yarn which can just be glimpsed on the top edges. The sleeve features a reclaimed striped fabric-covered heart button to hold the flap closed. "

Holographic Glitter Concrete Necklace by Concretely Shop


Holographic Glitter Concrete Necklace

by Concretely Shop


£18 plus shipping
Buy at Etsy

Made in Clevedon

"Sparkly electric blue necklace made from concrete and blue holographic glitter, on silver plated chain with lobster clasp.

You may be thinking, ‘But why would I wear concrete?’

Well, it's certainly different from the obvious gold, silver or beads. So, while most of us have a traditional view of concrete as something cold, industrial and harsh, it's fascinating to take the basic raw material and fashion it into delightful and delicate pieces of jewelry. We all wear jewelry to express our individuality and say something about how we feel. For many of us there is a thrill in finding pieces which are unique and unusual. These concrete pieces are definitely not run of the mill, nor something available on high street. So how likely will you meet someone else wearing a piece of concrete jewelry? If you choose what to wear to make an impact, this may be the perfect piece for you!"
