I've decided to move on to my next picture. A friend gave me these old buttons.

Beads Again!

Just wanted to show the almost finised product.

These beads have been sold in stores like The Space as fashion's take on the traditional Zulu beads sold at any self respecting Zulu traditional medicine shop. I have never seen a black person wearing the beads as a fashion statement. I think it would be confusing as to why wear them. So I've steered clear of the beads. But I think I've found a way to wear these with feeling like people might mistake me for isangoma.


I have been trying my hand at sewing again and embriodery. The stitches are not too sofisticated but I like the affect.More to come!

Boontje Earrings

Photographs by Kristy Carlson

These earrings were inspired by Tord Boontje's lights. I have been inspired by other designers or existing designs. I made these to compliment the another designer's work with the forged hook as something from me. I like to feel like I collaborating with someone. Maybe it's my personality, group work is more interesting to me. Or it's my method of working. I think these worked well. Thanks Tord!
