Starting with hand dyed silk organza and silk satin shibori ribbon, I began by beading the focal piece. As I was working it started to remind me of looking into dark tidepools full of urchins and other aquatic life taking place among the rocks and in between tides. Never exactly sure where this piece was leading, I decided to add a shibori ribbon beaded cord with short cellini spiral end caps. The cord is removable (hook and eye) and there is also an attached mag bar (magnetic pinback) so you can wear this asymmetrical piece as a necklace or a brooch. I have posted a video of the piece here.
