Noela's letters for January

I am continuing with my love for teabags and for recycled materials. 
This alphabet is all about teabags, copper wire, gold wax highlighting, lots of glue, and the mysterious and intriguing Mayan alphabet. The copper wire is sandwiched between 2 layers of teabag tissue.
If you look closely, you will see the Roman alphabet equivalent in the bottom right corner. I don't mind the lack of clarity as the assembled piece will be hanging in a window and the letters will be in order.

  1. Looking great Noela! They are intriguing and interesting and lovely - invite you to spend time with them and wonder about them. I love that they will hang with the light behind them as well.

  2. Very interesting - flash vs no flash! Just love these, the texture, colour and everything. I can't, however, decide which version I like better!

  3. Noela, Just great AGAIN! So different AGAIN!
    Lovely with the light behind them.

  4. These are wonderful - such organic shapes and mystical auras

  5. What can I say. You are just so very creative Noela. Great design on so many levels.

  6. Ditto Jo Murray's comment Noela. x gb

  7. C'est original, j'aime l'idée du recyclage et les couleurs du "sachet de thé".

    It original, I like the idea of recycling and the colors of the "tea bag".


Thanks for taking the time to comment on our work - we really appreciate it!
