I'm so happy you like it Sarcastra
It was a joy to make and includes a lot of beautiful little pieces I've had in my stash or found in walks near my home that were a perfect fit when put together.
I received a great piece of art in return from Sarcastra - again, the key to our swap was arty and experimental, and I love how she chose to interpret it.
(Disclaimer: I'm sorry my pictures truly do not do justice to the many details in this piece. All my good photography stuff is all packed up in boxes right now. Sarcastra, if you have better pictures please please please post them
She created a framework of wild wooden sticks, woven together and through with strips of linen (?), with beading detail, wire weaving, yarn weaving, all combined. It is so delicate and intricate, I'm shocked but happy it came through the mail in one piece.
Each strip has tiny beads embroidered on - must have taken forever!
I am envious of her wire wrapping skills. There's little details like this throughout the whole piece.
Gorgeous. Thank you so much Sarcastra for swapping with me. It was a pleasure getting to know you and receiving a fantastic piece of original art at the same time
