I Heart Macro – Texture

I’ve been experiementing  with adding fibers to my jewelry designs.  The contrast between the softness of sari silk and metal or glass is captivating.

The sari silk cording captures the eye with its brilliance and it adds another layer of texture over the richly patina’ed metal components by Melinda Orr Designs.  The smooth matte beads by Radiant Mind add still another surface texture.
