on the days when i spend hours animating, i also spend the most amount of time drawing or crafting. my hands must feel a type of shock or anxiety after spending all day on the computer, and the potential to make something physical always sounds really pleasant. this week i’ve been working on some necklaces in my down time. one type was made by knotting, a technique that my friends, the romeros, taught me. the other is a weaving taught to me by the 11-year-old i babysit. both are intricate and take a lot of time, but are so rewarding. i get to wear these pieces!

this white one was the woven one. i used some twine i got at home depot a few weeks ago. i love the way it turned out but i feel weird wearing it. here is the inspiration.

this technique is a lot like friendship bracelets that i made in my childhood except i included some brass components.
