Persephone and the Pomegranate

Hi all
Have something wonderful to share with you all.
In 2009 Maya of springtree road had an idea. She wanted to spin beads into yarn.
She popped into our shop and found the perfect little red garnet brios.

Her idea was to create a "Persephone and the Pomegranate yarn," with the the garnets as pomegranate seeds. She cultivated the idea, spun, dyed and piled the yarn with the garnets.
Here is the end result, her "Persephone and the Pomegranate mitts".
They are amazing, don't you agree?!

knitted the wrist part with the garnetted yarn


Maya made the fingerless gloves as a gift for her sis.
We've already asked...she won't be selling the mitts.
But if she can let go of it, Maya may sell the yarn at some point.
Stalk her Etsy shop and dot com to see if it becomes available.

We are tickled knowing our gemstones were used in such a cool creative way.
Thanks Maya!!!!!
