It makes me sad when crafters close their creative closets and won't share tips and techniques for projects.  We all live so far apart and have little or no impact on each other's sales markets, that I can't believe that information isn't freely shared.  I hope you'll reconsider and tell everyone how you achieved this effect for your jewelry.

I will share how I did it one day, but I'd rather perfect my technique, and have a pocket full of trouble shooting advice before I do so.  And enough time to make a proper tutorial on it.  No sense in in giving vague instructions with no hope of giving advice on how to correct or combat problems that may come up.  I'm still figuring it out too!

TdF fun - Spinning my own socks (which is also my level 3 final project)

And a minor distraction while washing wool... dye!
Rainbow dyeing dirty locks - vinegar, wool wash and water in the pot with the locks.  I sprinkled red, yellow and blue dyes over the fleece, poked it in and let it do it's thing! this is what happened!

I've had these cotswold locks forever... but since I was dying to dye something these were the first things that went in...

And about 8 ounces of merino top, into 1/2 of the left over dye bath (since it didn't exhaust) looks like this:

and the other half, I put dry merino into, and added some teal dye on top.  There wasn't enough purple in the dye bath, but I still like how this turned out!

So I guess I've been busy!

Well, they are either tucking it into their purses/bags, and taking small chunks out at a time, or they are using a distaff of some kind. Like explained in the wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distaff
