Seams jewelry

I have been collecting the side seams of jeans and trying to figure out what could I make out of them. At first I invented Seam Stress headband. And now finally I figured out where I can use the smaller pieces. May I represent: The Seams Jewelry.

Seam Stress head and wristbands, Seams Wrist wristbands and Hide and Seek vest 2.0.

Seams earrings.

So many fairs! The fish was also in handcraft fair in Seinäjoki. I had so much fun meeting different people. I liked having the workshop also. Thanks everybody who participated! Some photos from the fair:

The fish got interviewed by Janne Kataja!

Making of Takkutukkakeiju

Iina managed to take some photos during the process. I'm usually so concentrated on my work so no way I remember any making of photos..

So, the play is Takkutukkakeiju. A story about a fairy who isn't like other fairies, she loves popcorn instead of cotton candy and she cannot even dance. She leaves home to become a better fairy and make her parents proud and what she founds on her adventure..

Takkutukkakeiju in Tampere: 22.6, 23,6, 6.7, 7.7, 9.7, 10.7, 16.7, 17.7, 23.7, 24.7
Helsinki: 28.6, 29.6, 30.6, 1.7, 2.7 

We had fun making the costumes, thanks my assistants Iina Torhola and Susanna Yrjänäinen. Special thanks: Senni Salmi, Essi Oja, Anni Pihlaja, Maria Sorjonen and Tuomas Roine.

So finally some pics!

Tammelantorin ympäristötori

Yesterday I was selling stuff in Tammelan tori! It was such a nice evening with live music, smiling people and different sellers and organisations. Hopefully again next year!

I even sold a pair of jeans! These beauties from Final Denim collection went to a nice guy and they really fitted perfectly! It made me so happy. :)

Time to get back to wings and paws for Takkutukkakeiju!

I have been busy with costume designing again. Takkutukkakeiju is a story about a fairy who cannot dance, her wings are always on the way and she doesn't even like cotton candy. She goes on an adventure to become a better fairy and meets interesting people on her way...

I love making these costumes for fairies, trolls, princess and what ever you can imagine! Maybe you'll get some making of material later... ;3
