transformation in rope
Small Batch Hand Dyeing
Before a necklace is constructed each length of rope must first be measured, cut, and dyed based on the final design. This can take up to four, sometimes five, separate dye baths to achieve the desired color placement and ombre.
These designs have developed over many years of experimentation, trial and error, and play. I have my influences but mostly I let the fit and feel of a new design determine how to edit. You will discover both everyday necklaces as well as full torso sculptural works in the Neon Zinn universe, each lovingly made to order.
I understand the everyday need for affordable goods and services. I also feel passionate about the counter balance to a landscape of cheap and mass produced. Neon Zinn celebrates the exquisite potential found in everyday materials, emphasizes quality over quantity, and seeks out human connection through soulfully made wearable items.
