Welcome to Willowbird Studio

Hello, and welcome to Willowbird Studio.  I am excited to share my work with you.  I love handmade things, and constantly have a project on the go. 

I read a lot of art and craft books, and I am always impressed by the people who have spent a lifetime perfecting their skills in one medium or technique.  While I admire them, I have long ago given up on trying to emulate them.  My brain is like a pinball machine: I bounce from one project to another, sometimes interrupting one thing to try something entirely different.  Therefore, when visiting my blog you may see any of the following topics discussed: knitting, beading, drawing, sewing, quilting, polymer clay, jewellery making, cooking, reading, and more.

To give you a feel for the type of work I do, I have selected three projects to show you.

Lately I have been using image transfers and polymer clay to create jewellery.

I am enjoying exploring this technique, and I will be sharing more about it in future posts.

Whenever I learn about a new craft I feel compelled to try it out.  I was given some needle felting needles and roving by my aunt, and I made this doll.


I loved making this, and I've been meaning to get back to needle felting.  

Like a magpie, I am drawn to beads and other shiny things.  In addition to jewellery making, I also do off-loom bead weaving.  Here is a doll with a beaded face.


As I develop my blog, I plan to move beyond simply sharing my work.  I want to inspire creativity in others, so in addition to discussing my latest projects I will also offer tips, tricks, and tutorials on a variety of subjects.  Come again soon!
