chicago pendant workshop


When I think of Art Deco architecture, I think of the gorgeous city of Chicago – one of the most beautiful cities in the world! Years ago, I took their architectural cruise (highly recommended) and fell in love with the Art Deco buildings.

Art Deco began as a popular style of American architecture the 1920s and 1930s. The style originated as a visual art movement in France at the beginning of the 20th Century. It was seen at the 1925 Paris exposition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts and the 1933-1934 Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago. Art Deco architecture, sculpture, and decorative arts became extremely popular in the United States during this time.

While Art Deco designs vary widely, buildings are often characterized by vertical lines, building setbacks, terracotta, bright colors, and abstract geometric ornamentation.1

The pendant is made with components of Cubic Right Angle Weave and Peyote, and strung on an embellished chain of Silver Silk. Project will not be completed in workshop.
