Day 202/365

Vintage silk scarf as headband, handmade earrings, Ken Done scarf/belt made by The Social Studio, re-purposed Ken Done pillow-case and Canteen scarves into *amazing* necklace, Ken Done kaftan top and Ken Done pants donated by Cousin Christine, Birkenstock sandals.

Birdmonkey will be able to attest that when she gave me this hand-made Ken Done necklace on Friday I literally gasped with delight. Why? Let me count the ways:

1. I LOVE oversized jewellery
2. I LOVE jewellery that's not just made out of metals like silver or gold
3. I LOVE that birdmonkey and her *wonderful* friends took a faded Ken Done pillow-case and imagined up this *art piece*
4. I LOVE the participation of so many varied people in WKBD, especially people using all their talents to help support The Social Studio
5. I LOVE that this is just the first way I can wear this piece...

And I could probably keep going and going, but you get the idea: I LOVE!

What Ken Be Done? said...

Anon: she certainly is *amazing* that is for sure!

Lyndel: Must say, I do think I exude a certain comfortability with this kind of large, odd, *gorgeous* jewellery, so thanks for noticing!

BM: Legend, you are. :-)
