I’m very happy to present to you a small preview of what I’m going to show at Design Indaba beginning of March. On the weekend I also managed to stitch together these little photo booklets showing my new collage work.
COLLAGE is all about layering. I merge older and recent work, reuse decorative pieces I did long time ago, use scrap material and combine all this with exiting new materials and techniques.
Main techniques in combing the different layers is riveting. Apart from keeping all pieces together these rivets also function as settings for tiny stones& pearls or are used as a link to connect a necklace.
Another technique revisited is the use of thread on silver. In some of the new necklaces the Sisal band functioning as necklace is stitched onto the pendant.
Hope to see you there, Frieda
