guest star friday #24...eva of tinctory

i just found the work of eva of tinctory while visiting etsy. i was immediately drawn to eva's jewelry because it is smocked. there is something very comforting about smocking, it's so tactile, nostalgic, sentimental, feminine...i have loved smocking since i was a kid. my favorite thing to dress up in was a blue sundress with a smocked top and a full skirt. i like that eva keeps her pieces simple, creating mostly pendants. it really highlights the technique. her subdued color palette is contemporary, yet lends a sense of age.
thanks for reading.

These are really great! My mom used to make my sister and I smocked dresses and jumpers. She was quite the seamstress- which is a medium I could not grasp... So I went into metals.

I loves her pieces, the way she manipulates fabric is just beautiful. She reminds me of Ruth Singer, who works in fabric as well, but in more of an installation/artwork style.
