While I was browsing Etsy the other day I came across the absolutely insane work of textile/fiber/jewelry artist Mandy Besek.  I literally gasped when I saw her large agate armor necklace made entirely of textiles and inspired by line work found in canyon walls, Aboriginal paintings, sliced agate, and ocean patterns.  I mean seriously, are these pieces beyond incredible or what?  Total statement makers, which I love.  In her words:

Protect yourself from going through the motions…
Protect yourself from the dull and boring, the drab and depressing….
Protect your identity, the colors of your soul….

Arm yourself with the beautiful and the bizarre…
Adorn yourself in texture, color, and pattern…
Feel vibrant and joyful from the inside out…
