EXPERIMENTAL ADORNMENT

After initial researching of all the various things I found influential for this project. I started playing with adornment of my own, using different weighted and textured materials and making each piece individually, decorating them by hand or with a sewing machine and arranging each piece onto a stand to create a silhouette  I like, then sewing all the various pieces together by hand, so that it may be worn on the body.

These are some constructed textile experiments I’ve played with, I’m quite happy with them and I’ve used a wide range of methods these are fun to make and if you haven’t tried felting before I highly recommend it.
