Accessory 1 ~ Photo 6 (Work in Progress)

I am a Chicago suburban based artist and craft designer.

 

These Spats (boot coverings) were made from woven cereal boxes. They are currently on display until July 10, 2010 at the Lake County Welcome Center in Hammond Indiana. (exit 3 Kennedy Avenue -right off of I 80). Artist reception June 3 5:30 -7:30 pm. The group show is "Trash to Treasure X." My Plastic bag coat is also on display at this show.

 

*********************************************************************************************

I created these to wear in a Trashy Fashion show in November 2009 - To Promote Recycling , Reducing, and Repurposing...of course!

 

These were made along with a coat made out of plastic bags, and a hair clip from paper bags for a fantastic show put on by the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) where over 60 designs were created and worn. It was an AMAZING event! on November 13, in the suburbs of Chicago. I look forward to the next year's show. I am already thinking about what I will create.

 

See the 2 bottlecaps here? I flattened them with my die cutting machine.

Influenced by my great love of traditional Native American craft.

flattened and curved beer bottle caps are the secondary decorations.
