now that is an accessory!!

I recently saw this work online somewhere and immediately did more research and what did I find you ask?
This work is so beautiful and if you owned it could wear your art purchase right on your neck.

And not only does artist Willemijn de Greef make these amazing objects but he speaks with great eloquence about them:

"Weavings" is about more than the materials I use and the way I use these materials. It's also about train of thoughts, interlacing subjects, about where I come from, where I grew up. About engagements, family, and history. About how I read and experience things. How I see them and would like to see them.

I wish I could where something this beautiful and expressive on myself everyday.
