Material: Vintage Silk Chiffon Scarf
Number of Strands: 18
Necklace of Blue Silk and Brass
What once was my great aunt's silk scarf is now a multi stranded necklace of light weight cordage. The many shades of blue form barber pole like stripes.
The spliced ends are fringed in black from the border of the scarf and each is subtly adorned with a single brass tubular bead.
Family heirlooms and sentimental fabrics can make wonderful necklaces. It was with my great grandmother's handkerchief that I first discovered the power of having fabric from loved ones transformed in this way.
Please reach out if you have something that you would like for me to turn into cordage or if you are interested in learning this ancient technique yourself through a workshop.
