Makers’ Mark: The 2014 MAD Biennial Opens its Doors to New York’s Top Creatives
We made this cuff for our sister, an early champion and supporter of our work. It is made with 19th century antique metal beads, thread, and a contemporary tubular silver clasp. It is constructed with peyote stitch with beaded carriers on either end connecting to the clasp. Small circular floral motifs in green, red, purple, and blue are spaced across the cuff.
Cuff dimensions: 6 3/8 x 2 x 1/4 inches.
Function and Fantasy: Steven and William Ladd. Mingei International Museum, San Diego, California. 2014. Curator Christine Knoke.
