Purpose Me is a limited collection of thread necklaces which I wrap-make by hand. 

Each piece is unique in shape, size and color. And, like us, has her own imperfections. 

I made Red laying out a large thread bundle: a lively and soft core for the necklace.

Every Purpose has a story. Here's Red's.

"I cannot stop extending this thread. I start laying out groups, and then move to long horizontal strokes. It is very calming, a horizon over another horizon over another horizon. It is so calming that when the timer sounds I continue and continue, I wish to keep extending these horizons forever, one after the other after the other after the other. An eternal horizon to get lost in, to get calm in, to connect beyond the now in. 

I stop at the beginning of wrapping. I don’t want to repeat the same cadence and sequence of movements I have done in other wraps. It has no value. 
I decided to take a journey with a path. Left right left right left right. One cross, then the next, and so on. Slow, very slow, walk in the park. Enjoying and savouring every left right left right, every step I take.
I reach the end and walk back the same path, but with different steps. I commit to make the most beautiful piece I can. The colour mix, the crossing. Wonderful red-haired woman. I love her. She is soft and quiet and also witty and fun. She is unforgettable."
