Announcement   Welcome to elsielight! One of my greatest joys in making beaded jewelry and handwork of any kind is achieving a beautiful result. Coordinating color, material and style is an adventure that draws me forward to my goal.

Please check out my little knitted teddy bears - only 4 or 5 inches tall, soft and sweet, and made with little ones in mind.

Also I am including items from my sister's vintage fabric stash - lots of research going into some of these beautiful pieces.

Soon I"ll be listing my potholders, 7 layers of beautiful cotton quilted together with made heat proof Insul-Bright.

As my customer your delight and satisfaction is of utmost importance to me. Many times the same or similar pieces can be made in another color or size.

If you have any questions or requests, please let me know. Usually I can respond within 24 hours.

I hope you are enjoying your visit to elsielight!!

About

elsielight

I love beautiful things - classically beautiful. Color has been my abiding interest in every piece of handwork, in gardening, quilting. I love experimenting with color. I believe every color is beautiful in its natural setting.

Handwork for me started as a child with making doilies – one color, usually white, going round and round following intricate pattern, step by step. As an adult, this progressed to knitting – using one or two colors. It is when my interest in English gardening began, that color became a concentrated journey of finding hues and shades and tints to mix with form, texture and season. I had my graph paper out and was designing borders for every scenario available to me. As I moved to more rainy climes, quilting became the outlet for this passion of achieving beauty plus a new interest in evoking a certain era or style using pattern and color.

Making jewelry was a natural next step. In today’s small world, every color bead is available in an amazing diversity of size, shape and texture, from natural bone or wood to the most sparkling cut crystal or stone. Beginning with classes in beadweaving and knotting pearls, progressing to stringing beads and using chain to create pieces has given me a lots of opportunity to experiment with color, style and material to achieve the look I am after.

Knitting bears: Each little bear has 10 separate knitted pieces. (Each piece has two tails - the beginning and ending threads.) Careful attention is given as I stuff parts and sew them together - sewing the nose and mouth, setting the muzzle, sewing the eyes. In this process, each one takes on a personality all its own. Converting patterns so that major pieces could be done in the round made me much happier with the final product. They are soft to the touch and washable. Most of them have no swallowing hazards – these sweet squeezable bears are suitable for infants and toddlers. Making little bears (4-5 inches tall) is a refreshing departure I sometimes take from beads and quilting and knitted accessories.
