When I started creating necklaces from Felt in the beginning of the year, I got great responses and sold (to friends) almost everything that I made. Though at the time, I was using acrylic felt and store bought feature buttons. I decided I didn't want to do it this way anymore and so I started sourcing the best Merino Wool Felt and antique buttons.
Since this new turn in my designs, I've yet to sell a single piece. And so I'm wondering - Are my new designs just not that good?? see--> Flickr
I don't want to give up, aside from my partner Darcy, it is the only thing making me really happy... I guess I'm always the frustrated artist!!

I've always loved feminine things and feeling like a lady. This still holds true today, though for some reason I don't think it will fit my new direction. I guess that's my problem.. How do I choose a name that is going to represent all my different sides?? Because that is basically what my work is, "representing my different sides". I would have liked to have just used my name, "Polia" but that just sounds silly and so using my full name is out of the question, "Polia Giannoulidis".
The name "Piece by Piece" has stuck in my head, because that is how I work, in pieces.. But the name is already registered, as is "Piece by Peace" which I also thought about. I then moved onto "Piece by Polia" or "Pieces by Polia". I just don't know.
I guess I want my name to represent the fact that my work is/will be, unique, beautiful and ECO-FRIENDLY. Does Lady Bow P do all that??

I know I naively thought I would have been reopened within a month of my closing shop, but I now know by Christmas, I will be in full swing!!
Also.. I am enrolling into "Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology (Jewelry)" at NMIT starting next Feb for 2yrs full time. In order to enroll, I must first sit an interview/folio presentation, so I am enrolling myself into a few jewelry making short courses at CAE. I am very excited about everything!! Lady Bow P will soon have an extended range of handcrafted silver/(and all sorts of materials) jewelry.

It's midnight now and I'm marveling at my beautiful creation. I tried my hand at cobweb felting. I really enjoyed it, though at first I was really afraid because I find it hard to do something I don't know how to do on my own... but I got through and it turned out great! Tomorrow I'm going to spend my time before work turning it into a purse.
I can't wait to show you all!

I have just purchased my very first batch of 100% Merino Wool Felt Fabric. - NO MORE ACRYLIC FELT!!
I purchased this set of wool from Felt On The Fly and for my second batch I will purchase from Material Evidences Shop. I can't wait to get my hands on some really soft, beautiful felt!!
The next step for me will be wet felting. Oh the endless possibilities!!!
I can't wait!! xx

Thanks to some lovely people at etsy.com I think I'm well on my way. I still need my logo designed and photos taken, (both of which are being worked on), things are slowly coming along. And once my logo is designed, my brothers own a Design & Printing company so anything I need printed will be done with LOVE. - Thanks George&Michael!! - ALSO, I plan to have Corrabelle turn my logo design into a gorgeous stamp for my packaging.
My amazingly talented partner Darcy is working on my design, he is sketching it as I type. It is fantastic, I can't wait to share it with the world!!

Each chipboard button is super-glued onto felt.
(I did not make the buttons.)
Each piece is carefully hand-sewn.
For a more dramatic effect, wrap this pieces tightly around the neck. It can then be tied wherever you want it, either the front, side or back. For a more loose fitting, simply wear it like you would a scarf.

So since this photo was taken, I've been in love with warm, hue tones. I am going to work on a whole range of neckpieces in these colours and follow this theme.
LOOK OUT FOR IT

- I need a photographer, a setting and a model!!
- I then need a website built. I'm just not happy with the one I'm using now and I don't want to pay $20 a month!!!
- An invoice/receipt book is needed as is a visit to my accountant and the bank!

I wanted to create beautiful, original handmade neck-pieces reminiscent of classic beauty and glamour. So I created Lady Bow P and thus my love affair with ribbon, velvet, lace and buttons began. Spotlight and Trimings Remnants have become like a second home.
As for the name - In the beginning there was a Lady, she loved Bows and her name began with a P.
