Palm Leaf Clutch Necklaces
In recent years, new processes have been refined to allow for the recycling of fallen palm leaves into hard and sturdy material with which to create dinnerware, sheets, and other plate-like raw material. A unique form of hard fiber, having a consistency similar to a smooth lightwood, these palm leaf plates are opening up new, sustainable possibilities with which to make a plethora of objects across the design spectrum.
Join MAD, and jewelry artist Debra Rapoport, for this afternoon-long, hands-on workshop in creating a clutch necklace from recycled palm leaves. Utilizing cloth gussets, a "horse tail" twisted long handle, and a variety of embellishments, students will have the chance to create their very own autumn accessory from this unique material, one that allows the maker to be not only fashionable, but eco-friendly.
