Looking for Waxed Linen - 3 or 4 ply (8 spools)
« on: February 26, 2011, 10:39:47 PM »
I would be willing to trade one of my completed creations for several ( 8 ) spools of waxed linen.

8)

Picture of completed creation below is one of my earlier works, called Alaska Rain Forest Basket.  It is made from waxed linen and glass pony beads, approx. 2 inches dia by 4 inches tall.  Illuminates with a small low heat light source.  Value: $85

One of my favorites, but I consider parting with a good solid trade.  Other offers will be considered.

No response from this forum.  I also use 1mm diameter waxed cotton cord, but as that is cheaper material, it would take a lot of it to make it an even trade.  I would consider lower volume offers of waxed linen, as long as it is 4 ply.  I would consider 7 ply offers as well.  If I do not get an offer by May 30, I will remove the deal.

If you do not like the basket I have listed, I will consider a custom color order.  My waxed linen baskets now have a finished value of at least $125, up to $185.  We (my husband and I) also make custom coiled necklaces starting at $35 each.

Many blessings,
Simone

Waxed linen isn't something I use, but that basket is wonderful!

Sometimes jewelry makers (those that weave beads) also use it, so I thought I might find some here.  Ya never know.  *lol*

I love the basket you posted! I was just curious if you'd had any luck. I've only used waxed linen once and that was a long time ago. Good luck-hopefully someone will come through for you!
