As a child, it was a standard part of my life to spend time with my sister, Mother, and Great Aunts hanging clothes out on the clothesline to dry and returning hours later to retrieve and fold all the laundry. Looking back on that time brings back fond memories of spending time with the women in our family. In my MFA work, I use cotton rope, also called clothesline, to construct body adornment.

Committal Embrace – An interactive bracelet piece that needs to be worn on the inside of the wrist and be embraced like an infant. This piece gives a feeling of the ties to domesticity and a sense of burden, but the sewn rope form invokes a desire to try the piece on.

Amy Beeler is a full-time student pursuing her Master's in Fine Art in 3D Studio Art with a concentration in jewelry at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. Currently, she is creating a new body of work that uses cotton clothesline sewn into innovative jewelry forms.
