Small Spirit Weavings

Here are the weavings I've been doing on my Pocket Loom
I have been calling them Spirit Weavings.





These three have twig hangers that I sanded and polished with beeswax wood polish. I didn't strip off the bark, just sanded it to smoothness.

These twigs become part of the weavings.   Each is unique and beautiful.

Working on them gives me a great deal of pleasure. It's a sensory delight with the smoothing of the wood, the scent of the beeswax.. A soul delight, as I feel connection with trees, making things with these bits of them I find on the ground, working them into my art.

The Twig Factory:



 I've been using Beeautiful Beeswax Polish that I ordered from Nova Natural. It smells divine!



The bottom twig is au naturale, the top ones after my ministrations. I think these are tulip poplar twigs. They have a grey bark and  interesting little knobby protrusions and what my granddaughter described as "folds." When  they are finished, they have the loveliest warm brown color.

Hi Cathie, I got that loom at Earth Guild in Asheville, but they no longer carry it. The company that made it is still selling them I think. You can find them at:
