Back to Textiles Again
A better photo of the brooch this time except for the yukky background! It started with me trying out some new threads and eventually turned into a brooch.
The bookcover is made from silk paper and is my project from the last 84 Group meeting. The appliqued diamonds are also silk paper that was twin needled and I've added some beads. The current 84 group project is soldered copper tape frames and glass jewelery. I'm up to the soldering part.
Thanks to everyone who has left comments, they are appreciated.
