Inspiration: Tribal Neck Rings
My newest piece is a futuristic and colorful crocheted take on ethnic tribal rings. I hope to finish it very soon and post pictures of the completed result.
These two pictures serve as great inspiration. The first one is a picture of Icelandic singer Bjork, taken from her “Homogenic” album. The second one is a picture of a member of the Karen tribal group who live along the Thai and Burmese border.
I love the simple, yet powerful, look of these rings. Although they are quite controversial, the aesthetic serves as fodder for a host of design experiments.
