Put down your pencils

Inspired by our latest Process 376 project to make magic from the Craigslist free section, we've been posting designs that elevate the mundane and disposable. These sea inspired sculptures from Jennifer Maestre take the sharpened artist's pencil to a prickly, wonderful place. I love the way the pencil "fabric" has a soft side and a dangerous side.

The pencil pieces are charming, but the ones made of little more than nails, zippers, and mesh really took my breath away. Wow.
There is also a line of pencil jewelry available via her Etsy storefront. Pretty, pretty and on my holiday shopping list.
