New Jewelry

This lariat was done with 11os, stitching a spiral rope for the lariat part and then stitching Russian Leaves and flowers for the ends. I love this piece, because it can be worn with many different outfits.

This is the finished look of the Dahlia necklace that I posted earlier this year. This ties in the back, with 15os used for the ends, along with Swarovski pearls to embellish them.

This is my Anemone Necklace and is the first bit of bead embroidery on leather that I have tried. The button closure is an enamel button given to me by Laura McCabe.

I will be taking a slight departure from stitching with seed beads, to devote more time in the studio to develop a new body of mixed media artwork. I want to get enough pieces done so that I can apply for a one person show of my work. So, please stop by often to see the progress being made on this new body of work.
