Today i’m getting ready to make some more Tyre Swan necklaces.
When i was trying to work out how to make the 1st one, i couldn’t get me head around it so i made this toy tyre model so that i could understand what the rubber one could do.
When i was little we had a neighbour who had the whole aussie yard going – gnomes, decorative letterbox, swans – i loved walking past that house!
So apart from the occasional spy on a long drive, i couldn’t find one in the flesh so it was left to the combo of a how-to-cut-up-a tyre lesson from the cycle bag makers – Ron D Swan & a toy tyre from Hearn’s Hobbies (the other kind of adult toys..).
n.b. if you’ve never been there it’s well worth going – it’s like hobby-co’s serious cousin…who’s into war games…& wears cammos even though he works at the post office…(just by walking through the door you spontaniously grow a beard).
