Project Name: BEADSM


This collection indulges the self; I represent my deep obsession of shiny objects and jewelry through beads. My goal is to show the depravity of the human character when subjected to the obsession of an object. We demoralize and bankrupt ourselves in the opinion of others. The beads sit on top of the mesh creating a stark contrast to the muted dye and transparent mesh. The beads are rich, dense, and reflective. The silhouettes are natural and feminine. I created simple garments that have the illusion of wealth. I force luxury through a fa├žade of beads that distract the viewer from its simplicity and ease of the silhouettes.
