guest star #35...lucy sarneel

i just found the work of lucy sarneel last night and was immediately attracted to her mixed media necklaces. i love her combination of traditional looking textiles with modern metalwork, namely simple and bold geometric silhouettes. i like that the metalwork both contrasts and complements the fabric. the varying characteristics of the materials and the shapes, patterns, and final compositions are striking.
be sure to visit lucy's page on klimt02. you'll be able to see more images of her jewelry along with a few pictures of people wearing the work. it's fantastic to see the true scale of these pieces and how they exist on the body.

thanks for reading.
