This piece is not for sale.
The inspiration for this piece was a small antique cloisonne vase. The challenge was to fill the background space with enamel like colours. The brass work is imitated by the gold coloured rayon thread, and the beads reflect the light like the jewel tones of the real vase. Raw edge fused applique, satin stitching, hand quilting, and beading are techniques used in this piece.
Here is a close up of the thread work and the beading.
