Liberty

Liberty

While Mother was running for the Montana state senate, she was wearing mostly blue and white. She said she wanted something snappy. For the first half of the necklace I wove red seed beads and a sprinkling of blue and white into a rope. Once I loosened the rope’s strands I salted each with a variety of red glass shapes. I chose red not only for the zing it would add to her wardrobe but to represent the fiscally conservative nature of her platform. As a last touch I added a Liberty Bell and told her she could add other charms as she found them.
