Yesterday, I recalled a childhood memory of my grandmother and I at the sewing machine, and today it seems I have another…I remember driving by a cotton field when I was a child and thinking it was so beautiful. I am not even sure if I realized what it was at the time, but I was almost mesmerized by it. And up until a few days ago, I had honestly forgotten that tiny moment of childhood.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a good mustache/ beard necklace as much as the next girl, but in a (handmade) world of mustache-mania and other trends, this collection is a breath of fresh air.
Each tiny bead is hand-felted and is then capped with a vintage sea urchin bead cap. Here’s what Derya has to say about her collection…
“The Cotton Plants Collection was born when I simply came across a cotton plant photograph one day. The plant looked so pure and beautiful,I had to somehow incorporate it to my designs…”
