Bonnie Boon is back!

To say I've been away longer than I imagined is putting it mildly!  But the move did happen and we're now happily established deep the heart of Shakespeare county and loving our life in England.  

My studio is smaller than I had in Cyprus, but perfectly functional and the daylight job as a painter is continuing as before.  In the evenings I'm in relaxed mode with thread, yarn, fabric, beads, needles and hooks again and I have early signs of a new wearable art collection to show.

I'm being inspired by my love of cuff bracelets.  On the left is an example of one I made way back.  It's quite wide and warm to wear which is why I think this style is most suited to colder weather.  

But I also feel I want a style of cuff bracelet I can wear any time of the year whatever the weather.  So I'm aiming for a lighter, leaner feel and a chic, cool look!  And hope you like what you see.



These new cuffs are hand stitched and embroidered using stranded cotton threads on even weave linen fabrics.  They will fit a variety of wrist sizes by means of a clasp which fastens at any place along the chain extension.  They have individual characteristics and embellishments which are fully shown with photos and descriptions in my Etsy shop.
