A very helpful conversation


Just lately I've been chatting with Judith Connors. I met her a few years ago when I went to the Fringe Element Tat Days in Canada. Yes, I know Judith is from Australia but I was lucky enough to spend a few days with her and our hostess with then mostest (Terry). What did we have in common? I'll leave you to work that one out!!!

A few days ago we started to discuss the leaves that I've been making and she pointed out that the word 'tischband' is German for 'table ribbon' which, obviously, refers to a whole load of leaves (and other things) put together. Now that this has been pointed out to me I'm going to call them 'Ruth Scharf leaves' in future!!! Thanks, Judith, for pointing that out to me.

Now I wore this pair of earrings on Friday (and Saturday AND Sunday) and people thought they were beads because they sparkled so much. That’s, of course, down to the very sparkly thread I used. Pity that sparkle is so hard to photograph.

Well, whatever they're called, they're spectacular and make very nice earrings!

They are very beautiful but I have seen the thread in real life and understand about sparkles not great for photography.

From a distance, they do look a bit like scale chain mail. The photo effect is interesting too, I can see lots of tiny rainbows in there. They would definitely attract a lot of attention!

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
