new fiber necklace inspired by Silvina Romero
Posted by Kelly Darke
This is one of my new jewelry pieces using fiber: reclaimed yarn and then wrapped and embroidered with cotton embroidery thread.
I had come across the work of Silvina Romero a while back and was very inspired by her use of fiber since I had been unraveling sweaters to reuse the yarn in my own work. I wonder, how does inspiration really work? Am I inspired by her work because it was similar to my own - or is my work similar to hers because I was inspired by her work? It just seems that the more I get into fiber work, the more amazing fiber work I find all around.
