New Fabric Jewelry





My fiber pieces got a lot of interest at Texas Metal Arts so I decided to expand on that line. These pieces are made from Japanese silks and cottons that my mom had in her collection (thanks mom!). The fiber pieces that I had made before were made with needle felted silk and wool that mom did, so they were more of a collaboration. I definitely want to use more of her fiber, but for this application we found the fabric that she made to be too thick. I plan to expand on this collection some more, these are just the first batch of a new series. I will have these with me this weekend in San Antonio, so come check them out!

Fantastic. I've never seen anything like it. This is a very exciting development for you --- I predict big things!

Thanks everyone! I didn't sell any of these pieces this weekend, though I did trade a set with a fellow jewelry artist. I got a lot of interest online from my peers, which I think is a good sign, so I will be further pursuing this collection!
