Gaea Emerging - a mixed media bead embroidered necklace

Gaea Emerging
Wool roving, seed beads, pearls, aventurine, jade, copper 


In making Gaea Emerging, I developed a two-layered solution to the problem of stitched-on embellishments getting lost in the texture of the wool roving when felted wool is used as a background. The centerpiece of Gaea Emerging is a CopprClay pendant that I made, fired, and patinated. The organic feel of the piece led to the name. 

There are some step-out photos and basic instructions at the link.
