Sunset Tube Necklace
Lara Knutson makes light look three dimensional and mixes color in space. Light itself looks like something that can be touched and even inhaled. As you walk around, the necklace creates pulses of otherworldly light and sometimes even makes rainbows. Nothing is static or fixed; everything is immersive and experiential as the surfaces are playing with volume and our eyes' perception. Her innovation is a completely new way of making light.
Comprised of microscopic glass beads, Nebula’s soft reflective fabric glows when light is behind your head. Like a cloud of stardust, it is ephemeral with flashes of luminescence.
There is not need to cut Nebula’s stray threads. Give the entire strand a slight wiggle to put threads back in place.
This necklace can be wrapped to be on a wrist.
