Atwater Furniture Designer Makes Rad Tie-Dyed Rope Jewelry

Atwater-based furniture designer Tanya Aguiñiga has a fiber fetish. She covers everything from metal folding chairs to found headboards in candy-colored felt, and she spins common wool into delicate pop art home decor. But these days, she's unraveling and dip-dying some of the best rope jewelry we've seen yet. Inspired by a 1970s book of nautical knots, Aguiñiga first started experimenting with rope in her furniture—and in commissions for the likes of Commune and the Ace Palm Springs. The handmade and naturally dyed rope necklaces come in three sizes—small, medium, large—each corresponding to your statement-level to suit.
