SFEtsy Meet & Make – Victorian Hair Jewelry

Tonight I got to attend an Etsy Meet & Make run by the SFEtsy Group here in the Bay Area. I am a member of the group so when I heard about this workshop I was excited to go as it was my first one. This event was hosted at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, in San Jose, CA.

We got to experiment with fiber yarn and make a small piece of jewelry in the style of old Victorian hair design. See example photo below from the event.

Here is my work in progress.

Not too bad for my first attempt. The fiber we used was similar to the thread you would buy to make those friendship bracelets I made tons of when I was younger. You pull the threads apart (6 per strand) and then flatten them out in groups of 6 and make the basket weave pattern. Cute idea for buttons!
