These pins are on their way to a friend and artist who is a regular collector of my work. I included some felt scraps and silk scraps in her package. I will be adding handmade felt and silk paper to the shop soon.
I changed the name of the Jewelry section in Etsy to Quirky Pins/Brooches. They are quirky because they show the personality of my hand.

The photos give you an idea but this piece needs to be seen in person. Please come to my show at the Glenview Mansion Art Gallery in Rockville, MD, Opening November 6th, 2016.
The felted background is made from Tibetan Yak Roving which is incredibly soft. The girl’s image was transferred onto a light green felt. The beads are Gold Delica and Christmas beads. Added to the felt are ribbons plus some of my hand dyed organza silk and cottons. The piece is approximately 10″ x 15″; it widens towards the bottom.

These are not quite the pods from the old movie, but they do remind me of pods or leaves. They are made from roving which I turn into felt, then shape and embroider. They are about 4 inches wide and range in length from 7 – 9 inches long.
