From the studio...

I'm pretty excited to have finally gotten all the components together for these new necklaces I've been working one. I am using a knitting machine to knit tube that is then filled with glass beads. The image I've attached is the first one that I have completed, and I have to admit that I'm pretty happy with it. My goal is to make necklaces that are super long, ranging from 6 to 10 feet. I am also going to reintroduce the retroglo thread (made out of tiny glass beads), so that the necklaces will reflect in direct light. I'll post more images as the work progresses.

  1. Yay! I love to hear about what you're going to do and then see it afterward because it's always so much better than what I can imagine.
