Did you know?

Birds of paradise are found in New Guinea and surrounding islands. The manucodes and riflebirds species also dwell in Australia. Birds of paradise are so attractive that their appearance once made them the target of skin hunters, who decimated some species.These birds also lend their name to a colorful flower. South Africa’s bird-of-paradise (Strelitzia reginae) is a member of the banana family. It sports a beautiful flower believed to resemble the avian bird of paradise in flight.

Very Beautiful Necklace made with African Turquoise beads and Glass pearls.
Materials: Metallic yarn, African turquoise Teeth beads, Glass Pearls, Rhinestone Cup chain, Chain.


The name Turquoise is derived from the French, pierre turquoise, meaning “Turkish stone,” because the trade routes that brought Turquoise to Europe from the mines in central Asia went through Turkey, and Venetian merchants often purchased the stone in Turkish bazaars.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth

Crazy crochet man

Crazy crochet man

Thus crazy crochet man inspired me to knit myself colorful cardigan. It’s a long process so hopefully i can show you the results in couple weeks.

In 1964 my friends started calling me Spooner because I was making animal shapes using melted and bent plastic spoons. The name stuck. I started my art business in 1967 in Haight-Ashbury. My first products were ponchos. I thought of them as security blankets to wear. That led to my company name. From there I made my living crocheting in New York, Interlochen, Boston, then Ann Arbor where I reside today.

He grew up in Kalamazoo MI, where he learned to crochet from Grandma. Spooner says that his unusual clothes is a good way to draw the attention of famous people)

Crocheted friendship bracelet, do you have?

A friendship bracelet is a handmade bracelet intended for a special person. A friendship bracelet is usually made of several strands of embroidery floss that have been knotted to form intricate patterns. People of all ages but particularly teens have made use of a macrame technique to create these bracelets for their friends. Because the technique is relatively simple, requires no special equipment and can be done with inexpensive materials, making and sharing friendship bracelets is something nearly everyone can do.

This is my interpretation)
