Wild About: August 3, 2012

Birthday jewelry by Esther Yaloz

Colore me in love with the work of New York-dwelling artist and textile designer Esther Yaloz, whose birthday flowers made from satin fabric, metallic glass beads, and copper/silver chain are a thing of beauty. To me, they’re slightly reminiscent of creatures found in the deepest parts of the ocean, the ones that radiate the most brilliant of light and are as thin as strands of hair.

Esther wrote to me saying that “The the inspiration for the jewelry came from my love for wildflowers and wanting to preserve a moment\memory, so by collecting leaves and flowers that only grow and bloom in the spring and then ‘capturing’ them onto fabric they become timeless pieces. I really like the idea of elevating a wildflower into a piece of art.”
