Part of Tanya Aguiñiga’s art practice are “wearables,” – a fashion-forward collection of handmade accessories and apparel. This featured jewelry set is made of natural cotton rope partially dipped in colored dye. The necklace comes with a light gray tint, matching the rope bracelet that features accents of chartreuse. This one-of-a-kind set is inspired by the artist’s collection, “Dipped, Dyed and Leafed.” All wearables are designed and crafted in Aguiñiga’s studio in Los Angeles.
