Ever since I randomly came across an image of my brother in law on her blog, I've been following Ashley Helvey's work. She makes wonderful felted objects, such as the rug and shimenawa necklaces pictured above. She also just made a series of cast bronze pendants from stones found on the beach, for sale at Totokaelo under the name of Hunter Gatherer(er).
Simple, earthy, lovely!
