About pliersandstring

Sales 184
On Etsy since 2014

From lonely bits to something beautiful.

My grandmother's sewing table drawers were filled with hundreds of tiny buttons which I obsessed over as a child. They wound up on the floor daily, strewn about while I sifted through them, picking out my favorites and sorting them into piles and arrangements, until inevitably discovered by an adult at which point my foray would temporarily end.
The adult version of this obsession has manifested in—you guessed it—beads. Metal beads, gemstone beads, wood beads, all sorts of beads in all sorts of shapes. Tiny objects which mean nothing on their own, but when combined can bring forth something truly stunning.
As with the buttons, these beads can take over every available surface area of my life. I am constantly arranging, rearranging and deconstructing, until I am satisfied that my little bits have collectively fulfilled their purpose.
I hope you enjoyed browsing, and thanks for visiting!
