One of my new favorite Internet finds is Cursive Designs. Sara Fox is from Chicago and she is making amazing jewelry by modifying pieces of lace. She searches for lace designs, selects out design from the pattern and then stiffens and dyes the lace. It is then ready to be transformed into ethereal pieces such as these:
These are just a few of the pieces she has created. I have the necklace above and it is just gorgeous in person. And when you go to the site, you can see she offers most of her pieces is several vibrant colors like the coral and aqua above as well as greens, peachy-pink and white.
I like to support artists creating unique work and Sara is a true craftsman. Check it out!
