Eleanor Deyeson's Workshop

I never met an artefact I didn't like.

16th Century

Renaissance, Reformation, and the New World.

  • 16th C Lampwork Challenge item (10/11/2016) - Both round and interlaced glass links, with some gold links as well, make up this spectacular 16th C German necklace.
  • 16th C Lampwork Challenge item (10/11/2016) - Lampwork is more than just beads. Look at this gorgeous and technically challenging glass chain necklace.
  • Cabbage for the Tailor (10/8/2016) - Cabbage for the tailor - the period phrase for leftover fabric.
  • Late Period English Pattern Library (10/7/2016) - A summary of the best known books for 16th C English clothing.
  • 16th C Pleatwork Apron (10/7/2016) - 16th C Pleatwork Apron with heraldic detail made for a gift exchange. Pleating spots marked using a plastic canvas grid.
  • Late Period Tailor’s Books (10/6/2016) - Actual sketches of patterns from the 16th C are rare, but DO exist. Here's links to find them, and to find the books that fully explain those simple sketches.

  • 16 C Spanish scroll for Xandre (9/8/2007) - Inspired by 16th C Spanish Carta Ejecutoria, this was a fun scroll to make.
  • 16th C Calligraphy for Sashatec (8/11/2007) - Working with another illuminator, I did the calligraphy for this 16th C Laurel scroll, in 2007.
