Happy Holidays!

Hi Friends,

I will be on holiday from the 24th of December, reopening my shop on the 15th of January.
In order to complete all orders received before the holiday, I will be putting my shops on Vacation mode from Friday the 16th of December. This means I won't be able to take any more orders this year from Friday, but I will be around until Christmas if you are up for a chat. For any enquiries after Christmas, contact me directly on whitenoisemaker [!at] rocketmail.com

Thank you very much for all your support for the first year of WhiteNoiseMaker.

I will see you in the happy new year 2012!

Check out Melanie's website "by Nature Bamboo Lingerie" for her own beautiful eco-friendly lingerie line. She is also the current featured seller on Felt, check out here for her exclusive interview.

LAST PAIR! Black & White Crochet Slippers with Pink Felt Balls

These slippers have been one of the most popular design and my personal favourite. This is the very last pair available from my Etsy shop and there will be no other just like these.


New Crochet Slippers

These slippers are made from three different yarns in Azure, French Blue and Citrus mix. The edging is crocheted with pure wool in Mushroom colour and lightly hand felted. This process helps to maintain the shape of the slippers. Available from White Noise Maker on Etsy

Week#3 Talent: Crochet Obsession

I initially was going to post one item from kathecuervo as part of my weekly talent, but had difficulty choosing only one piece from her beautiful collection. She makes crochet jewelry with freeform crochet, a technique that is not limited by boring patterns and can be as free as your imagination. I also love the vibrant colour she uses with the regional fibres she collects when she travels.


Week#2 Talent: Beach Stone Buttons

I appreciate any form of design that compliments the material; the kind that is beautiful without having to go through complicated and artificial production or manufacturing. 

Looking at these buttons made out of beach stones, I can see how Tamilla from StoneHood has handpicked each stone considering its colour, shape, texture... how she pair them together... deciding how many button holes suit each stone and where they should go... and all the work that goes into these clean and minimal finished products, sometimes we don't take enough time to appreciate. 

Modern Medicine Bag - Crochet Brooch

A medicine bag is a traditional North American Indian container for various items of supernatural power. While anyone may have one, usually it would be the medicine man, or shaman, of a tribe who would carry one. As something that holds supernatural items, the medicine bag must also have some power of its own. 
- Wikipedia
My choice of weapon here in my medicine bag is some common cold medicines. Its greatest power being looking amazing pinned on your favorite jacket.


Week#1 Talent: Gorgeous Items For Wee Cupcakes

Talented Nikke from gottahavebaby has lush, luxury and GORGEOUS pieces for your wee cupcakes. Check out this "Delicious Pink Tweed Winter Cap" I adore! and many more beautiful pieces from her Etsy shop. The model is also just gorgeous!!
