One of the four necklaces in the Fiber Arts show, which is opening this weekend. Yay! From the North. Adornment for the modern Igloo dweller. From the earth, and from the sea, shapes emerge and melt back from whence they came. Free-form knotting encases antique blue Indonesian glass trade beads, mineralized Mammoth ivory beads and three ancient Walrus ivory Eskimo fishing net sinkers from the Bering Sea. The cord on which it all hangs was hand felted with Merino Wool that was dyed with local Black Walnuts. In a handmade frame of Bird’s Eye Maple and Walnut woods.
