I'm thinking - beach ... . ocean .. . . coral . . . shells.
Not such unusual thoughts to wander through ones' mind
at the beginning of summer.
But, these beachy shells & coral & creatures are just about
as unusual as you will ever see.
It must take a V E R Y talented and creative mind to sit down
and knit & crochet intricate coral formations and shells.
Not your usual grandmothers afghan .. . .
The brilliant talent behind these beauties is Helle Jorgenson of Sydney, Australia.
Really, REALLY, love her work.
Oh -- - that part about making Treasures from "Trash" .... .
Anyone with a creative streak as deep as Helle isn't going to just
run to her local yarn store and pick up a skein of wool:
she often makes her own "yarn " from paper and plastic bags!
Inclined to give it a try? Just go here and she'll teach you how.
