About this project

The Japanese folktale Momotaro or Little Peachling inspired these necklaces.

Research into playfulness in design led me to deciding the materials, joins & colour for these necklaces using a dice game. Individual pieces with common roots, I have exhibited them with a mural from the story, giving them context, displaying them as carnival & costume.

Each bead is hand made from reclaimed wood or other recycled materials,
