A PEEDIE GIFT FROM ORKNEY
This summer I started to add my own photographs and artwork on to 'found' items such as shells, sea glass and pottery that I have collected all around the Orkney shoreline. Sometimes I add these 'finds' to my original paintings but just recently I have been putting together small or 'peedie' gift boxes which include a mixture of my shoreline finds, each box is a unique artwork made up of several beach finds including one or two covered finds but also found sea glass, pottery and shells. Some customers have told me that they have added in their own collection of beach finds to their box to make it into an even more special keepsake! The box is made from re cycled craft board with a fitted lid and tied with my own design of printed silk ribbon.
