I bought a box of vintage jewelry and other bits from my friend Kelly. The pieces belonged to her grandmother and some of her grandmother’s friends. Amongst them was this little bit of fabric with some pearls stitched to it. I don’t know what it was, but it had such sweetness that I could not help but be fascinated and enamoured.
It brought to mind these beads from my friend Andrew. They are vintage, from Japan, and are beads used to start cultivated pearls. I’m not sure where I am headed with this. I only hope, in whatever I make, to capture a bit of sweetness myself.
