5dotnecklace_Vollkommer_Mïa_Image1Mia Vollkommer is a self-taught artist, with work that is both intricate and charming. Vollkommer first constructs a hand-wrapped metal frame, and then, one-by-one, she stitches glass, stone and metal beads into place. While no glue or soldering is performed, the pieces are incredibly sturdy despite their delicate appearance. Vollkommer’s work combines the traditional techniques of wire-wrapping and bead weaving to create unique pieces with a modern aesthetic. The resulting style is a bubbly form of cheerful or seasonal colors and patterns and resemble embroidery designs. Website>
