Keep searching for the treasures in your soul.

This piece of work was my first foray into a whole new world of multi media textile art. I layered strips of fabric, wool and various threads which I had dyed using Procion dyes. I then machine embroidered continually over them to secure. I enhanced a picture of sea nymphs and then potocopied them onto organza photocopy paper. These were then placed onto the strata background and covered with chiffon and again machine embroidered using silver threads. I then fixed various beaded earrings which had been my late Mothers as treasures in the coral reef.
