the Harry collection

For a while now, I have been working on some crafts to sell and I am trying to make them seem somewhat cohesive. People keep asking me what I am going to be selling at this upcoming craft fair and my reply is "oh a bunch of random things". Although I still can't fully explain myself or the things I make—I'm not sure I ever will be able to— I at least now can put a name on it. I'm calling this collection of things "Harry". Besides it being my father's name, the collection is loosely inspired by fashion and punk rock icon Debbie Harry. Studs, chains, leather, metal...she might not have worn any of it, but it somehow makes me think of her. She's my muse for my most recent craft projects.
