Workshop | Cynthia Rutledge | A Cut Above

A Cut Above was inspired by two different aspects of the work of Antoni Gaudí. The first, being the architectural flowing shapes, arches, and spires of his work. The second was to capture the essence of his use of color and light. Each tassel consists of three shaped components, laced together to form “windows” of color and structure. At the top of each of the tassels is a four-sided CZ beaded bead, reflecting light as it is worn. The chain is a filled-netting, evoking the style of leaded glass, and the ending is a sliding clasp.
