hand-dyed silk yarn, size 11 seed beads, brass cuffs, C-Lon thread, ultrasuede
What was your inspiration?
I was inspired by Mayan culture. I was taking the concept of small format weavings from other cultures and applying that to a piece of jewelry. I then figured out a method to incorporate beads into the fiber cuff. I used vibrant colors that are not normally seen in jewelry.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of coming up with something that is completely unique.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Use the correct equipment and be very patient and thoughtful as you do the piece. Learn to live with failure. If it doesn't come out right the first time that's okay, because there is always a second and third and fourth opportunity to make it right.
