"Growing up with a fiber arts teacher as a mother, I started learning the fundamentals of textile art at a very young age. I have always felt the need to push the limits of this medium. In my search for items that would translate to something that can be seen or used in everyday life, I went from making rugs and wall hangings to creating containers and baskets and finally jewelry. Every step along the way, I worked smaller and smaller while translating fiber art techniques into techniques I could use with metals and gemstones. Current favorite techniques include crochet, tapestry weaving and basket weaving."
...stay tuned for pictures...waiting for the battery on my phone to finish charging! :)
Here are the promised pictures! Ghislaine tells me that the reddish tube beads and the red round beads are coral and that the other beads are Picasso beads, which she says are one of her favorite types of beads...found that most interesting, as I, too love them!! The pendant is 'agate', wire-braided in copper and is just sooo beautiful, I just love it too!
