Adornments
12/31/2018


2018 was the year I ventured further into personal adornment by launching a series of neck pieces made from joomchi or hand felted paper. Each neck piece is made of paper that has been 'felted' and then treated with konnyaku aka konjak, a plant juice used in Asian papermaking to add strength and some water protection. Then hundreds of circles and attached to a central line made of black elastic. It's a painstaking process with, I think, very nice results. The end results are lightweight and can be doubled up.
Pictured are two versions of the neckpieces hung together.

In 2018 I began a series of neck pieces called “Read This Necklace”. There are four to date: Font (based on the book “Fine Print on Type”), Blackbird (inspired by Paul McCartney’s song of the same name and using the book by Nicholas Schaffner, no image yet), and The Green Poodles (written and illustrated by Charlotte Baker). Here are pictures of two of the necklaces.
