Boathouse Bracelet

One of the benefits of being in a warehouse full of studios is being surrounded by other creative individuals. Rebecca Eckstrand created the amazing mosaic seen above for the University of Iowa boathouse. She is also one of my fellow Fitch Studio artists and asked me to help create a bracelet to commemorate the experience using one of the glass tiles from the mosaic.

The original design for the piece is Becky's and 3D interpretation/format is mine. We both were pleased with the outcome and I look forward to future collaborations with my fellow artists.
