Fashion Statements in Crochet

As long-time blog readers know, I love the nexus of fiber, art, and fashion, so for today’s blog post, I wanted to share the work of fiber artist Cielo Pessione, whose gorgeous crochet neck-pieces combine traditional fibers with unconventional materials like hematite beads and even hedgehog quills!

These sophisticated one-of-a-kind art pieces really emphasize just how versatile crochet can be.

    The textile arts are not immediately thought of when the word “art” is said. Perhaps with more decorative arts in the form of couture then that impression will change. I really like the idea of semi precious stones being integrated into design.
