Doesn't it make you wish you could look inside?
My contribution was a necklace for the theme notorious. I chose the magpie as my subject - notorious for its thieving of bits and pieces of shining stuff. I used one of those protective pocket watch cases I have been finding at the flea market and created a little assemblage inside of it - an image of a magpie, a wire nest, bits of bling... you get the idea.
I created the necklace with a ribbon of shimmering sari silk in green/black - which reminds me of a magpie's feathers - and an old watch chain. Then I created the magpie's stash - this was like going to the flea market - a pewter button, beads, a coin, a recycled rhinestone brooch, a small antique key, various recycled jewelry dangles and some more sari silk. All the sort of things I imagined a magpie would get excited about. I mean, even I get excited about them!
Thank you so much for letting me be a part of this incredible zine, Alicia!!!
