This is a 6ft necklace woven in the month of August 2020, which normally is the time of the year when I come back from Italy, home.
This year none of us was able to travel and I’m sure we all miss it, and when travel means also seeing your family and friends, the lack of it felt heavier on me. And it made me realized how much I still want to discover and see of Italy, so this piece is called “AS SOON AS WE CAN TRAVEL I WILL VISIT...”, because yes, you guess it right, these were all pages of a Michelin road of Italy Atlas. While weaving I was looking at all the places I knew, all the memories of every place I have been but also at so many new places I wanna travel to.
And of course while we wait for the situation to improve, this necklace also reminds us to safely keep 6ft apart, so in case you need to measure the proper social distance you can use this necklace!
