Embroidery and Beading Sampler

Student: Naomi Skaggs
Course: Structural Enrichment, DS228

 I explored various stitches and beading techniques. I choose to create a fanciful world of vines and insects out of intricate stitches and beadwork. I had some plan when I first started but the surface of the fabric and the texture that was formed as I worked produced the end result. The way I arranged my lines, shapes and colors created a soft, flowing movement across the surface. I am inspired constantly by nature and the world around me, which is especially apparent in this piece.
