I like to transform discarded items into something new, useful and creative. Textiles (t-shirts, wool sweaters, chenille bedspreads) can be deconstructed, maybe cut up more and embellished further, then pieced into wearable art or home goods.
When a friend gave me a stash of old telephone wire from a gutted office building, I knew I would use it for something someday. Thus my coiled-wire bracelets were created.
These are just some of the materials I’m currently using. Who knows what my next find will yield?! The process of tearing down and rebuilding is what makes me happy, that and keeping stuff out of a landfill.
