Dare To Wear Show St Pancras Church Crypt London

I am just finishing one of three very large necklaces for The Dare to Wear Show,curated by Sue Kreitzman.
It promises to be a really exciting show,27 mixed media artists will be exploring profound wardrobe conundrums,will beige kill you,what will you wear to the afterlife?
The show promises to be an exuberant riot of art,colour and texture.

I have selected from Sues collection of my work some of my favorite necklaces which were commissioned
by Sue and are wild!I often have used Tatty Devines pieces in Sues commissions.,Harriet and Rosie creators of Tatty Devine Jewellry have also created a piece for the show,which they told me was delivered yesterday.

One of the necklaces I have made for the show,I love the little devil thet peers over the shoulder.
Materials used were river bone(very old),shed antler,brass,wood.
It was very hard trying to carve the bone pieces,I used my husbands tools and managed to break a lot of drill bits in the process,I have had to work outside as the dust was awful,under Matts guidance though it was fun,but not an experience I care to repeat any time soon!

On the right is another necklace in which I used a lot of silver, wood, vintagewww.wildoldwomen.info pieces from my studio and fabric.Both pieces are for sale and actually wearable!
