Alana from FANCY! (a beautifully curated blog of New Zealand design) was kind enough to feature Beard&Braid (Toby and I) in the first of her new series Us Two- where she asks creative couples to share their lives and work. Go and have a nosey here. And yes, that's our lounge. So tidy!

Silk and wood
A commissioned necklace using silks, leather cord, wooden beads and copper findings. All hand sewn, which I enjoy doing. I'm thinking about starting a bigger hand sewing project this winter- I love the look of sashiko embroidery. Such repetitive simple patt...
A commissioned necklace using silks, leather cord, wooden beads and copper findings. All hand sewn, which I enjoy doing. I'm thinking about starting a bigger hand sewing project this winter- I love the look of sashiko embroidery. Such repetitive simple patterns looks rather meditative.

Objects my cat has brought me
Bird is learning to hunt and has been bringing us presents. Half-dead cicadas, dry leaves and the odd sock. If only she'd catch the mouse I saw in the kitchen the other night... This is Bird when we first got her, about 8 weeks old. She's so much bigger now.

Bird & the bird

You never regret a swim
I went for a magical swim on Sunday. I have no photos from it, but I collected these cat's eye shells from the beach as a reminder: you never regret a swim.
