A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Ganutell


I am so excited to find out what the technique is called that was used to make these earrings! Thanks to SharonB (www.inaminuteago.com) I have just now discovered that it is called 'Ganutell' , which apparently is a fairly old art which originated in Malta. More info can be found at www.beadsky.com and at a few more places available on Sharon's site.

The earrings reminded me of the old string art we used to do, most probably back in the early 70's, only much finer. Imagine my surprise to see that Sharon had found the real name for it. It sounds like pretty much all you need is wire and either silk thread or floss. This is only technique I have to try!

Hey, this could be considered informative. Could this mean mumblings are a thing of the past? Lol.
