I cannot stop thinking about these necklaces by EABurns. I saw them a couple of months ago, so long that I can’t remember exactly where it was that I first laid eyes upon them. All I do know is that I bookmarked the Lizzie Burns’ page and have been dreamy-eyed about her pieces ever since. I have actually been meaning to write this blog post since the moment I saw them.
EABurns is an ethical label primarily using reclaimed and scrap leather from U.K manufacturers.They believe that the environment and good design are equally important and aim to balance these. All of their pieces are hand made in the UK using sustainable processes wherever possible and they use biodegradable and reusable packaging for all internet orders. Love? A yes I do.
Besides the “green” attitude, I am totally obsessed with her pieces. Damn if I don’t want my bridesmaids to wear the fluorescent green with their black bridesmaids dresses, because wouldn’t that be memorable? I am smitten with the colors, the hard edges and almost magical feel to the jewelry and accessory lines from Lizzie.
I think that if I were ever to have a design line, I would most definitely have to incorporate these intersting and unique pieces somehow… but to start, I should probably just buy one and wear it! Which should I go for?
So I have always loved the look of this necklaces with fabric beads or beads covered in fabric, however they are made. I did a little research online and found that there were quite a few tutorials for different kinds of variations on the beaded fabric jewelry. Here is my go at it using some left over fabric from a dress I am making, some beads from a necklace that met its demise in Boston and a couple other little notions hangin’ around.
What do you think of my creation? Wanna try this for yourself? My favorite tutorials on the web are here, here and here.
