This piece combines photographs and dimensional beadwork to coexist into one entity. The colored images are taken from their home within the covers of Life Magazine and Archive, working together to live in today’s modern style. I believe that moments exist as blurbs of memories captured from our past. The beads shapes were made individually, like moments in our lives. The combination of these materials is an unexpected collaboration. The owner of the bag gets to contribute to the surface design by letting his/or her items held in the clutch, show through and add more complexity to the piece. The piece is a combination of depth and memories that make up its past and allow the owner of the piece to contribute to its future.
