This is an assortment of bangles that I made using wire and silk sari fabric and beads. The other ones are leather and waxed linen and some old, weathered ball chain.
I unearthed an old quilt that was made by one of my relatives. Being of an unknown vintage and in tatters, I wasn’t sad to cut it into small pieces to use in some necklaces. The original fabrics for the construction were flour sacks. It is embellished with an appliqued heart and a hand stamped piece of copper and then I hammered a rectangle of copper to enclose it. Each one is strung with glass and wooden beads to complement the fabrics.
