“Seedpods and Flowers”, my new collection of soft fiber necklaces are now available in Garnish. Right in the heart of Revelstoke, Garnish is an artist owned boutique with a full working studio. The boutique features all Canadian jewelers, three of which work out of the studio space in the back of the store. I am excited to have my fiber art jewelry featured amongst these talented jewelers.

I have always had it in mind to make fiber art necklaces using my own hand dyed and printed textiles. I finally produced some this week and am really pleased with the results. They have a strong ethnic tribal flavour and are soft and comfortable to wear. I’ve really enjoyed designing and making them.
