Divider Tab Necklace

Hester/Experimental/File Tab Necklace

Hester/Experimental/File Tab Necklace

An example of a designed artifact that exhibits the qualities of a confidant is the file tab necklace. These necklaces are made of window file tabs, hand-dyed linen thread, and buttons. By appropriating the language of a common object these pieces become easily understood and customizable objects of personal expression. Through committed and sustained interaction, the owner of the necklace can imbue the piece with elements that provide a glimpse of their individual personality.

Many thanks to Lulu for her necklace design. This is the story of Lulu and her best friend.
