Blue Bone Necklace


December 2013

When artist Tara J. Brannigan moved to New Zealand, she handed off some of her bones and such to me, for which I am quite grateful. One of them is this mink leg bone that she painted in metallic blue, black and silver. I wire-wrapped it and strung it on a cord with black glass, pewter, and blue and white resin beads; the resin beads were reclaimed from another crafter’s destash. This is a very visually complex piece, with many little contours, textures, and plays of color.
