Patricia brought along a selection of her jewellery pieces.She makes the focus beads by combining threads,ribbons and beads,wrapping and embellishing.These are then matched with commercial beads,often semi precious,before she strings the necklaces or attaches earwires for earrings.
Each piece is truly individual and make lovely gifts for self or others.
More jewel- like surfaces from Ira,using acrylic paint and printed with her own blocks.
By the time she has added her trademark French knots,stitching and beads these will be totally transformed.
These have been cut apart to create some small pieces.We thought they would look very precious mounted in deep frames and all hung together.
And this "jewel" presented by Deryll is destined to be part of a larger piece.She came across it while sorting .It has been stitched and small pieces of fabric applied before being covered with a plastic film and heated ,this caused it to shrink and pucker.Can you guess what she intends for it?
