|Spice shades in the hedgerows - from my sketchbook|
I loved wandering through the souk on our trip to Morocco some years ago, looking at all the heaped bowls of spices, dates, olives and other exotic wares. Spice stalls jostle for attention amongst leather goods, carpets and metalwork. I’ve an idea for a collar exploring the theme of spices, but it will have to wait until the new year to be made as I am working my way through my waiting list.
When I get round to making the Spice Trail Collar, I will include hints of olive green, as well as some textured sterling silver, to remind me of the other goods on sale in the souk as well as the hot spices. Those mottled ones in my little wooden bowls are made of ceramic and have been waiting for inspiration to tempt them out.
