A few examples of African jewelry and adornment. So bold in color and form, with delicate detailing, certainly an inspiration. The last image is of a vintage dress that I have altered with an African inspired neckline. New neckline consists of embroidery thread and vermeil faceted beads. I am currently working on a small collection of African inspired jewelry, incorporating this thread wrapping technique as well as wood carving.
