Inspired by a traditional Russian bead weaving stitch called Jabot. Jabot is translated as a “cascade of lace” and is a term for the lace sewn into the front opening of a man’s shirt in the 17th century. The undulating movement of this stitch reminded me so much of the way metal bends and forms under the careful work of a hammer and flame, the two seemed to be meant to work together
This necklace is made in the traditional netted weave of the Saraguro people of southern Ecuador. This stitch inspired my Telerana necklace
