Convolution 2013 had a masked ball instead of a masquerade. Instead of dressing in a costume, I used it as an opportunity to dress up. Except I had one problem. I am blind as a bat without corrective lenses of some sort. Contact lenses aren’t really an option because I have extremely dry eyes. Most masks won’t fit over or around glasses. So when I found a mask that worked with them, I didn’t hesitate to purchase it. I knew that I wanted to wear with it, but didn’t have any jewelry that worked with it.
So what did I do? Did I hit the jewelry stores looking for that special, expensive something? Nope. I ran to the yarn store. I knew right away what I wanted to make. In two days, I made a set of earrings and a necklace. I think their curves and steampunk aesthetic matched the mask perfectly.
