some stunning quilted/patchwork jewelry made from recycled denim and other fabrics, by greenpoint, brooklyn-based fiber artist julie floersch. her line of quilted jewelry is called Kwilti. i love her necklaces/collars especially the innovative use of the seams of jeans, for added visual and textural interest in said neckpieces is genius.
she also makes other quilted work as well as some pieced accessories to decorate one's home. you can peruse said items on her website, and see/buy her work at brooklyn's Jan & Äya, located in greenpoint, brooklyn, through march 1, 2009. an interview with julie may be found on that shop's blog, here.
