May your search through nature, lead you to yourself.



I haven't shown you anything new in a while, I've been working away on a couple of pieces of work that are being shown alongside the Daphne's Glove pieces. This one is particularly detailed and has taken me a long time! It sits within a vintage cutlery box covered with pages from an old copy of 'flowers of the field'. I've decorated the front with little acorns which I've filled and decorated.
Would you like to see inside?






Here are a few more details...

This work is simply stunning, I love your use of neutral tones and the texture of the beads, threads and fabrics. Beautiful

That's so lovely. The front gives only a hint of the quiet beauty inside. I love the little glimmers of the buttons hitting the light and those vintage edelweiss at the top are a lovely touch.

every time i see a piece you are working on i am so moved. the quiet stillness of nature, the peace and spirit like wonder in every piece speaks to my heart

Such lovely work. Love the subtle color palette and spareness of design. Gives the piece a very quiet feel even tho there's a ton of stitching. And those acorns are very cute. You don't see much 3D work like that anymore so it's always a delightful surprise.

The bird is exquisitely stitched and I love the way you've used the lace to depict the frothy flower heads x
