SCARSDALE– Elena Rosenberg is a local artist working with a material we often overlook as an artist’s medium…fiber. She creates hand-knit fashion accessories, clothing, and fiber jewelry.
“I work with natural materials, including silk, merino wool, organic cotton, alpaca, cashmere, bamboo,” she writes. “My designs are modern, elegant, and innovative, with nods both to the classically elegant and the fashion-forward.”
Her collection includes shawls, wraps, scarves, cowls, capelets, shrugs, hats, gauntlets; Iready-made pieces and custom-made garments. She will do custom knit shawls and wraps for brides and bridesmaids.
This spring, she released a remarkable series of fiber art jewelry — necklaces and lariats made in pure silk, “inspired by botanical and aquatic forms.” (You can order here.)
You can also find Elena at juried fine craft shows, such as her next show is the Paradise City Arts Festival in Northampton, MA, 5/26-5/28- “A great Memorial Day weekend destination, by the way!” she says.
