I made this as part of my last project at York College. Within the project of ‘Multiples,’ it was suggested that the class created imagery with lots of the same thing, multiple chairs, houses, natural objects etc. I came up with a very vague idea of ‘multiple stitches’. I drew out designs for bib necklaces, little capes and things, but I decided on making some sort of hand adornment in response to the project. I can’t say it’s a practical piece to wear, but I’m surprised by how well it fits with it being my first attempt – its very different to making gloves.
