Some pretty groovy stash necklaces, baby

Stash necklaces for lighters, lip balms, vials and vibrators

Making Amanita muscaria mushroom necklace holders-of-things. I build them to fit a standard size clipper, but they can fit around a few different items. It’s functional festival wear! Lightweight, hard wearing, and easily washable.

I’ve hand embroidered the cap scales onto the surface using the French knot, so each mushroom is as unique as you’d find in nature 🍄❤🍄

I also went to the trouble of making a video but just cannot get it to load! So I am throwing up my hands and instead, will link to my Depop page and the direct listing where they are currently £9, plus postage and handling. There’s a video there if you are keen, and takes about 16 seconds to watch.

About kellymarietheartist

I am an artist who, up until recently, was living and exhibiting within Toowoomba and the greater Granite Belt district. I have since packed up and left Australia, and am currently living and working in England. My work engages the craft involved in handmaking within a contemporary art context. I am drawn to the physicality of repetitive textile processes, and this is transcribed though the tactile quality of my forms. In particular, processes such as crochet, sewing and rug making serve as a proxy for growth within my personal environment. Many of my works imitate situations in nature, and they form organically as I create each individual piece, each addition both a continuation and re-enforcement of its predecessors. I enjoy using recycled materials for many of my works. Using crochet and other textile techniques to do this is an important part of my work as it celebrates a tradition of craft that has historically been relegated to 'women's work', with all the negative connotations that entails.
