Folk Prism is a collection infused with color for the spring and summer. Inspired by the beautiful color and pattern of the Maasai Tribe creations. Combining genuine Ethiopian brass pieces with African seedbeads and antique trade beads along with authentic bayou boho elements.
I updated the images on my homepage with some of the new things I've been creatin' lately. I am in love with the simplicity of all of these new pieces combining soft leather lace with chunky natural stones and the warm beauty of brass accents. I have been collecting many of these crystals for years and it makes me so happy to finally be using them in such a way that feels perfect to me. A real urban cowgirl & Indian feel. Two things that have I always felt a strong connection to.
I have been busy making these first days of the year and it has been a pleasant way to bring in the new year. These leather necklaces are inspired by bolos and native breastplate necklaces. I like the warmth of the black deer skin with beautiful brass accents and chunky natural stone. I've been blessed with a few sweet custom dreamcatchers and I have enjoyed working with those materials again. I am looking forward to much more creatin' in the year ahead.
Delight. Resilience. Risk. Great words to hold close to my heart when looking forward.
