Marbles – I collected them as a kid – now they are useful as well as beautiful.
Caviar – I mix micro glass beads with glue to create a paste that enhances the appearance, but also adds strength to the construction.
Vintage components – They are earth friendly, repurposed/upcycled/recycled materials that are interesting to look at – 360 degrees worth on every cuff! And… nothing can be found at Hobby Lobby nor Michael’s!
Do you really wear these – Yes! Some are easy to wear with everyday outfits, but some are more for special occasions or display like any other small sculpture.
How long did it take to make this piece – Well, as an artist friend of mine says, “It’s taken me a 60+ years to get it completed! That is the smart mouth answer – the one people are probably looking for… well, depends on how many pieces go on it, and whether it is falling together easily or being problematic – anywhere from 4 to 40 hours?!
