Thalia Suzuki Keple
I create one-of-a kind jewelry and wearable art that combines the ethnic traditions of Asian and Western cultures with modern techniques. I begin each needlewoven necklace with fibers and yarns, then add metals, semi-precious stones and beads for strength and sparkle. My newest necklaces are made of vintage kimono and obi clothing. My scarves are handwoven on a floor loom using traditional and modern techniques, including beading and supplemental warps.
