It's been years ago when I visited my cousin in MA. His girl friend, MJ, was a teacher for the school of the blind. She talked how different to teach the blinds and she shared braille cards to me. I love touching it as the card is so soft with "dimple" on it.
As I was sitting in my studio, going through my books for some inspiration, I found this card. My heart jumped as I have been thinking about designing a piece from it and now this is my chance.
The necklace is make of 3/8" wide copper sheet. The length varies depending on the characters. Picture shown is "Abigail" and "Gaby". Abigail is about 2 3/8" long. I think I should not go longer than that or otherwise it will poke someone. I can do patina or natural finish.
and of course, braille inspired classes is coming up soon. If you would like me to teach at your school, please contact me conny(at)bigib(dot)com
