windswept and tattered

torn and tattered, vintage and recycled, bits of nature,
new made to appear old...elements brought together to create
this wildly layered heart mounted on
a well worn vintage cabinet card.

textiles and vintage haberdashery...menswear fabric,
silk ribbon, hand dyed laces, recycled tea bags,
silk fragments from a Victorian blouse,
tulle, hand sewn glass beads.

curly grapevine and a piece of slate from my roof...
vintage key with fresh water pearls and hematite

rusty found metal and salvaged clock remnants.
now available on Etsy.

1920s bathing beauties

My latest series...
designed to look like a tattered page
torn from an old photograph album.
Lots of tone on tone layers, frayed fabrics,
silk, hand dyed lace, hand stitched details,
tattered bits and bobs...
