this item is a sculptural piece that can be displayed in several ways. it can be worn as a necklace, hung on the wall, or separated into three individual houses to set on a shelf or table.
each house is a different shape and features hand embroidery as well as machine stitching. the chimney of each house is a loop of fabric so that the houses can be rearranged and removed from the cord using the attached ribbons. elastic and button closures on the sides of each house allow them to collapse flat or have an object placed inside.
