There is opportunity to shift structural language when a person is invited to play with unexpected materials without any expectations. Throughout the weekend of JCAST, Sky Garden Gallery and Theda Sandiford invite you to make strings of beads from recycled bottle caps.
Drawing inspiration from various beading traditions, mixing different bottle caps to make a string of colorful oversized beaded necklaces. Your creation will become a part of an upcoming installation celebrating personal adornment.
You can also tour Sky Garden Gallery and interact with my Emotional Baggage Cart series.
I am looking forward to making, with you….

I’ve been stringing bottle cap pearls on cider six packs with polyurethane twine since last year but finally got around to making the hanging structures to this summer.
Inspired by my home school virtual artist residency with NOW Friends in Nairobi Kenya.
