Swope was our earliest tower. I used make shift tools in our first studio (a live/work space) to create the boxes, while William perfected his peyote stitch for the beadwork. This Tower was the earliest fruit of our collaboration. It consists of three tan and black ultrasuede boxes containing a handbag and three necklaces.
