The 1970s may as well be ancient history to 21-year-old Bryghton Edberg, but she’s bringing some of the decade’s signature look to her modern approach to macrame.
“It’s a wall hanging designed with different knots to make different patterns,” she explained. “I’d seen it places and always said to myself, ‘I can make that’ but never have, but my mom’s birthday was coming up and I had to make something for her, so that’s what I decided to do.”
Edberg’s mom, Stacy Wengler, is co-owner of handmade business Knotty Gnome Variety & Salvage and a partner in 605 Made.
And the “maker” gene quickly surfaced in Edberg.
“She constantly encourages me to make more. Every day. All the time,” Edberg said.
She will be selling wall hangings and plant hangers at Friday’s 605 Made Market, sponsored by and located at The First National Bank in Sioux Falls at Ninth and Phillips.
But she also will be creating a macrame hanging live as the featured artist for the 605 Made stop on the Art & Wine Walk presented by Downtown Sioux Falls Inc. for its First Friday event.
Participants can sample wine and purchase a wristband for the walk while watching Edberg craft from 5 to 9 p.m.
“I’ll probably get a pretty large piece done while I’m there,” she said. “I don’t think there are a lot of local people making this. It’s an art form of the ’70s and it died down a little bit, but it’s definitely making a comeback since the whole Bohemian style is really popular.”
