Fantoosherie is the New Black
Hello fancy friends, Fantoosherie have been busy stitching a big, sleek, black beauty of a necklace for an amazing woman we met on Monday. We were (rather unexpectedly) invited over to show our accessories to a mysterious woman who wanted to have a piece of our jewellery to wear to an event in South Africa. We didn't realise at the time she'd be getting on the plane the next day and that she wanted an gigantic, extravegant black number! Well we jumped at the challenge! I have to mention too that this woman is living in my dream house: high tenement ceillings, Frida Kahlo prints plastered on the wall, the most amazing view of Glasgow from her bedroom and a fantastic 1920's mahogany drinks cabinet the size of my wardrobe!
But to the jewellery... Myself and Kirsty ran straight home (ok via vino to chatter over the bizzare evening's happenings) to dig out all the black scraps we had. Leather, lace, satin, silk it was going to be a mass of black texture! We brought our pieces together last night and will be dropping it off to her husband later tonight who will be flying our precious creation out to her! I don't think I can let it go. I think it looks like a fancy Queen of the Crows!
We also had a wee bit spare so we're going to add a surprise fabric ring to her package too!
In other news we're getting very excited for the new Harris Tweed designs launch at Che Camille Tomorow evening. We are thrilled to be part of the exhibition as Tweed fanatics! Pictures coming soon, it will be a kaleidoscope of colour compared to our dip into black!
In the meantime, put the kettle on and stay fancy x
