Lacey Mew

Here is a preview of progress on my latest project.  Of course it includes a little bit of needle lace.  I am continuing to explore traditional needle lace techniques while researching other materials in relation to it.

Tentatively titled "Lacey Mew."   While lacey is obvious, the word mew has many meanings among them is an old English meaning that relates to a cage for hawks, as well as a place of concealment.

Myung Urso

Myung Urso is a South Korean artist with several degrees including an MFA in fibre arts.  Her style of combining unusual materials to make jewelry is fascinating.  Wood, fabric, yarn, paper, gesso, and wire are just some of the materials that Myung uses making works more sculptural than jewelry.  I admire this artists daring in combining materials together with a jewelers skill while employing the rawness of fibres.
