In the Kantfabriek were 2 little displays with unusual jewelry. An artist wanted to try if the machines also work with a synthetic thread instead of the usual cotton. And it worked. Ze made a cylinder of synthetic thread. In that she did some silver beads, knotted it. And voila a very rare necklace. My explanation is not very luminous, but the pictures maybe are.
De kunstenares maakte ook driekhoekige opbjecten van het synthetische kant. Het is immers stijf genoeg voor een 3D voorwerp. Of het speciaal voor Koninginnedag in oranje was, wist de suppoost niet te vertellen.
The artist also made triangle objects from the synthetic lace. It is strong enough to build in 3D. The warden could not tell me if the orange colour was chosen because of Queensday.
Actually we did know about the little cylinders. Everybody will recognize the hair curlers from our grandma's. They had a synthetic cylinder round a iron frame. And the cylinder was artificial made, in Horst. On the picture above we see the curlers at the right. On the left are the cylinders before they turned into a curler. The cylinders for the jewelry were smaller.
