Meg Hannan Fabric Jewels

Meg Hannan  Fabric Jewels are one-of-a-kind pieces. There are so many exciting things about Meg’s pieces that I don’t know where to begin. The first question that pops into your head when you look at her pieces is, “What IS that?” You know it’s a pendant or a set of earrings, but are they made of beads or glue or what? I’ll give you a hint – the name says it all!

Fabric Jewels. It’s a special process called millefiori.

Meg’s obviously not going to share her secret with the world, but she does tell us that she uses special secret glue. “For the purposes of your questions of durability, the glue protects mightily against water and a quite a bit from light as well.”

Meg makes her creations using recycled fabrics. 97 % of the fabrics are from used items. Recycled bedspreads, placemats, and woven items are primary ingredients. She also uses t-shirts, towels and any other fabric that looks exciting. It is 99% cotton.

Her pieces are colorful, fun, and easy to coordinate like the set I’m wearing to the left. (Please note that the hemp cord my pendant is hanging from is NOT what was included with the pendant. I restrung it to fit a clasp that I had already.) It was love at first sight when I saw these lime green earrings on her webpage. I love green despite the obvious coincidence and I love the combination of green and pink even more. This set went perfectly with the pink top I had but with all of the colors combined, I could pair it with almost any outfit to show it off. I was even more excited to find that she included an endbit so that I could see the process for myself. (The piece pictured next to my pendant above.)

When asked about her inspiration, Meg says this:

“I always want to answer this with some dazzling one liner, but the truth is, it has been a long evolution. It mostly comes down to three things:”

Show up every day
Pay close attention and
Follow the prompts
