Hi, Fiona here, new to etsey with my Alternative Creative shop.
Creativity is something that has always been a natural part of my life and livelyhood.

As a child I got my fingers into just about everything. My mother in her wisdom joined me to the spinners and weavers guild, something I'm very grateful for. The ladies of the guild taught me something invaluable, how to actualize a project, a skill I have lived and worked by for the whole of my adult life.
In my time I have been a Dancer & Dance teacher, Costume and Alternative Fashion designer, and now Alternative Celebrant here in Sydney.

Hand Dye is something I return to again & again, I began developing my style of tying & dying as a teenager, of and on for my whole life I have had market stall businesses, for 10 years I had market stall in Glebe Sydney using this fabric I now have on offer, a soft rayon open knit jersey that soaks up dye and is lovely to wear. I use a variety of techniques in my my process and often add layers of colour and depth.

I draw my inspiration from nature and name my ranges with titles like" Tropical Sea"
" Cloudy Sky" " Earth".

Also I have always loved stones and have a new found love of beading semi precious stones that compliment my other accessories.

I'm new to Etsy but not to hand dyeing with this particular fabric, both of which I have been working with for 20 years! Over that time have developed my own dying style.
If anyone in Sydney remembers my label 'Subculture Clothing " and the stall I had at Glebe Markets for more than 10 years please feel free to say hi.
I am posting many more items and will be listing some jewelry that coordinates with the scarves, wraps and hairwraps.
