In the WT - Wild Things series of earrings - Kullu weave pattis, which are woolen woven strips from Himachal, northern State of India, are combined with chains, pom poms, cowries, and beads. These are fully handcrafted with the use of bright-colored fabrics. These are a contemporary take on tribal adornments. Large size is symbolic of the significance of jewelry as a medium to convey meaning. These earrings question the role of jewelry: Is it to convey your status in your tribe, or are the bright colors a symbol of prosperity or perhaps happiness? Only the wearer decides why they appeal to them and what they want to convey. But they are definitely talking!

Fiber/Wearable, Mixed Media (Combining Kullu weaves from northern state of India, Himanchal Pradesh, with chains and beads)
