I have been Buzzy




Winter's end

Fall Leaves

Spring Begins

Bell & Things Bracelet

Lost & Found Cuff

I am sorry I haven't been putting up any posts lately, but I have been experimenting with copper mesh, banana leaves, wire, raw wool, recycled fabric, shells and any natural object that won't disintegrate. I'm trying to find a way to bring together the materials I love by experimenting with different techniques. I have large containers in my studio filled with discarded clothes. I really want to find a way to recycle and give them a second life.  I have cut some of the material in long stripes and have sewn it onto a copper mesh armature, then crocheted into the material for more texture. The neck piece (Fall Leaves) is stiff which gives it a sculptural feeling. I have also included some pieces I finished for the show I had. I would love to read your comments, thanks for stopping by. 

Keep Buzzy
