Inspired by the Blue Sock Monkey

The wee blue sock monkey, now called Diego, inspired me to get stuck into some jewellery making. 

Jewellery making is something I’ve done for years and considered starting my own business a while back. But life and lack of time took over and sadly I’ve not made a think for over a year.  But I’ve just changed all that by creating three new necklaces and re-discovered one that I made some time ago and had forgotten all about.

As modelled by the lovely Diego!

 Apologies for my lack of photography skills and improvised backgrounds!

Sock Monkey

I first made one of these back in September while at The Hairth festival ( http://www.knockengorroch.org.uk/).  He was a fair effort and certainly unique!

After that weekend I promised myself I’d make another, so I finally made one this morning and I’m pretty pleased with the results!

I found step-by-step instructions, to remind me of the process, here: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Sock-Monkey

Here he is!
