Color has never been one of my design strengths, but I keep thinking that my designs could really sing if I could improve in this area. This necklace is my first attempt to take color seriously and bring it in as a design element.
This last month I have been singularly focused on perfecting the construction and technique in the creation of the trinket boxes. As I have been working on them, a greater design vision has emerged. This necklace is my attempt to bring that greater vision to life.
This project has satisfied my soul in a unique and deep way. Merging my love of woven architectural structures along with a whole design point of view, and not leaving color neglected, is like eating a whole meal. Meat, veggies and dessert all in one. I am well fed.
I feel I have stumbled upon my own path here, and it feels so right!
The necklace is meant to be worn, either long, or doubled.
