seed beads,depict ocean waves and a sassy mermaid.
Aquas, blues, lavender, green, pink and white, with fringe and shells.
Embroidered on white felt cloth and backed with ultrasuede, the details took a while to complete. I am happy with the results. She would be happy hanging on a wall when not adorning one's white or pastel gown or sundress.

Little horse is not done but she is what I've been working on the last few days. It was suppose to be a wild horse like the one you imagine when you think of the 4 horses of the Apocalypse but she turned out rather sweet instead. So now the dilemma.
do I let her be or do I change that red eye for something gentler. Opinions please?
I really like stitching on this special felt. it is firm but forgiving and made from recycled plastic bottles. Cool, huh?

I couldn't just pick up one, but bought a fistful. Now I am contemplating how else to show them off.

I have just made a miniature version to wear like a locket. I love doors, gates, locks with keys...to me indicating new beginnings, secrets, adventure, Safe place, something new to be revealed.

"So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.
Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.
Sing your death song and die like a hero going home."

I attached special swivel links to hold the chain, this means the chain can be removed so the piece can hung from the rings when it's not being worn.
I plan to use this ploy again as it seems like a smart move to me. Tell me what you think!!
