I found these little sweeties in a shop in Rathdowne St. I was a bit early to meet a friend for coffee, so I just popped in--and there they were. They cost less than my coffee and cake and they're going to make me happy for a lot longer. The maker isn't credited. I'm sorry about that. Their appeal to me--apart from the obvious colour--is that they're made of thread. It seems to be a version of the string art I did as a child with nails on a board, but the gaps in a wire spring have been used in place of the nails, so the effect is light and subtle. And being made of thread, they are remarkably light to wear. I like that.
