Yesterday's dye job. I find that I'm enjoying posting pictures of the dyed paper before I turn it into jewelry. Sometimes it looks so cool the way it is, I hate to chop it up! So it's nice to document the intermediate stage. This one was inspired when an Etsian posted in her blog a photo of a spilled drop of tea. I can't remember who it was, though, or I'd link! If you know, please tell me! Anyway, I thought it was amazing, and set out to riff on that simple, accidental beauty. Did a batch in earthy green on caramel, and now this red. I've already started a bracelet from it, and I think a full necklace may be in order, too. I like the shot with 2 of the drops-- reminds me a bit of binary stars.
