Artist Statement: What caught my eye was the amazing color spectrum in the piece of fabric. I also was drawn to the idea of symbols of luck, something we all need, especially during this complicated time. These three necklaces were made in response to the shapes and colors found in the piece of the cloth and hope they can serve as a lucky talisman to the wearer.
