Little Tapestries

 

My LITTLE TAPESTRIES pieces are influenced by traditional textile art.

A traditional tapestry is traditionally woven on a vertical loom, and composed of two sets of interlaced threads. Threads running parallel to the piece create the tension. Threads running back and across along the width create the pattern or image. It is these threads which show in the traditional tapestry.

Tapestries were very portable. They could also be draped on the walls of castles for insulation during winter. They could be hung as decorative interior elements and displays of wealth. The "Cartoon" -- that is, the design image -- ranged from the purely decorative to tales of heroicism, mysticism, or religiosity.

Often, to make these loomed pieces feel more 3-dimensional, they were embellished with beads, pieces of glass, and pieces of mirrored glass, which would create fascinating interplays with light. The beads might be used to create border fringes, or might be sewn into or embroidered onto the tapestries themselves.

In my LITTLE TAPESTRIES COLLECTION are pieces of jewelry constructed in a similar vein as traditional tapestry textiles. Beads and components are bead-woven together to create little tapestries meant to be worn as necklaces. Glass, metal and crystal beads create a fabulous wealth of color and light effects. When the pieces adorn the person, these color and light effects play with and off of that person's movement, amplifying the excitement, power and visual appeal.

The LITTLE TAPESTRIES pieces are designed to wear close to the neckline. They are, however, adjustable in length, allowing them to be worn lower, if desired.
