I believe in the HEALING energy of COLOR. I also believe that my technical ability to work with fabric and thread is a gift. Inspiration comes from the MUSE who guides the use of color energy and shimmering threads of illumination, as each piece evolves. COMMISSIONS are welcomed! I am happy to customize a design to reflect your preferences. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your special requests .

Materials: Dupioni Silk, African Cotton, nylon, silk-screened "Peace" sign, glass beads and metal "hand" charm
Method: In creating this piece, I honestly had no plan in mind at the beginning. I just wanted to try this new stack and slash technique and thought that the shiny silk fabric had a rich sheen. After cutting 6 inch squares and making all the 4 ½ inch blocks, it was one block short of a complete square of background fabric. I found the silk-screened cotton "Peace" symbol square in my stash of fabrics and was pleased to discover that not only did it fit perfectly, but the colors worked too! One would think that it was ‘planned' that way. I like to think that my Muse took over and just used my hands to create this piece. The embellishment of glass beads were added to emphasize the circles of energy flowing throughout the piece. The ‘hand' charm seems to say that we all have a hand in making Peace!
