Still working on adding to my inventory at the Valdese Heritage Arts Center and My Shop, so today I am sharing two new pieces. Neither seemed to translate well through photographs...so if you're local, head on down to the Arts Center to check them out for a better view.
This piece is called Seed Pod Envy and it is 8" x 10". It is a holographic piece, which is not translating really well through photograph. I used two of my own photographs and transposed them together in Photoshop and then used a unique filter on them to bring out the interesting patterns in the photographs. One layer is printed onto cotton twill, and the other layer onto silk organza and both are applied to stretcher frames. The border is a soft pink high quality cotton dyed fabric, which was donated to me by my dear friend, Beth Bailey, (thanks, Beth!), and thread stitched with batting added inside.
Feeling like making jewelry again, I crocheted this 26 gauge copper wire and incorporated Jasper stones in two sizes and copper spacer beads for accents. The earrings are copper wire wrapped as well, although it is not showing well in the photograph (sorry, about that.) This piece is about 23" long, very light weight and goes with lots of colors!
