Leading to Happiness

Marisol Mojica

M.-Mojica

Artist Statement: This piece was inspired by the Native American culture. I chose the Skyband symbol meaning Leading to Happiness. The Native Americans use symbols to tell stories; each symbol represents a unique aspect of life, the human spirit, importance of nature and being in tune with the natural world. My design also incorporates a personal affirmation that is written on paper and sewn within the design. The beads represent my personal happiness and the process of expanding through my life experiences. I designed the necklace with glass beads, red rayon fabric, brass wire, shoe lace with embroidery thread (closure), and the metal brass Skyband symbol in the front of necklace.

Materials: Glass beads, red rayon fabric, brass wire, shoe lace with embroidery thread (closure), and the brass symbol
