What was your inspiration?
I was inspired by my love of tapestry. I wanted to use those techniques to make jewelry, which essentially would be small format weaving. It was so much fun I had to make a lot of them.
What are you most proud of?
Coming up with something original and colorful.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be patient and use a good loom with great tension. Don't be afraid of color. Buy a tapestry weaving book and study some of the techniques so you can expand into making shapes and maybe even scenes.
