Home Stretch!

Just thought I’d write a quick post on my long neglected blog here. This weekend I finally put together the first two garter designs, and I’m thrilled with how they turned out. When you plan to make something months in advance, and are gathering all the components so it can look like what you have in your head, to have it actually look right is just so rewarding. It’s the ┬ámoment when the thing you’ve made transcends its parts, when all of your small decisions add up. Glancing over at my studio table, I kept confusing the actual vintage garter with my reproduction.

Here are the first two designs. They will be up on etsy very soon!
