inspiration overload: tinctory…
Posted in fashion, handmade November 19th, 2009 by pia





Eva, from Tinctory, makes the most exquisite pieces of jewellery. She repurposes vintage silk and uses natural dyes to create intricate smocked pendants, brooches, bracelets and necklaces – her inspiration being feathers, sand patterns, shells, and fallen leaves. I am completely enamoured by her style and techniques, and the end results are breathtaking…


Eva has an extensive collection, available on both etsy and big cartel, as well as a flickr account filled with beautiful images of the processes, and experiments. Words escape me…



found via sam’s notebook, again. Sam, stop distracting me from my work now…

    I ran out over to my momĀ“s and had to show this post to her. We were both speechless. These necklaces are just otherworldly.
    What a great find Pia!
