I love trying new things. As part of my recent and burgeoning studio practice, I started painting a whole host of beads without any idea where it was going.
And then, I hit the spray studio. And then, I remembered I had antiqued leather and linen yarn in my stash.
Eventually, these necklaces were born. I’ve worn the left two every day since I made them; I gifted the turquoise and silver one to my friend and studio mate, Rebecca. She just so happened to be wearing the perfect handmade tank top that morning, like it was kismet.
I’m even getting so obsessive about this particular practice, that I might considering selling these, if I think there is interested buyers out there. What do you think? Would you wear something like this by me?
As part of the kick off to Me Made May, today, I sport one of these necklaces. It’s not clothing, but its handmade jewelry. Does that count?
