While making the final preparations for a new collection of rope and gemstone pieces, I took an impromptu side step and introduced some leather to the mix. Extra thick leather cord provided a simple and sturdy base for the collar style necklace, with an amethyst stone secured using wrapped silk, and cotton cord wedged in between. This one was just for fun, but I may have to explore it further!
And as a small preview, below are a few of the pieces I was supposed to be working on. Combinations of soft acrylic rope, golden tubes, natural marble and one of my favourites, a bright glass stone clamped into place with strips of brass. I'll be back soon to share the rest!
