On Thursday my husband won a drawing at Cole Gallery in Edmonds, WA and got this beautiful tree charm (pictured) by Jennifer Phillips. The necklace got me thinking about small-scale art and, in particular, small scale tapestry. It is something I have not done much experimentation with but it seems to be very in vogue lately (Especially with fantastic tapestry artists such as Kathe Todd-Hooker weaving small scale tapestries).
It gave me an idea… woven pendents. Teeny tiny mini tapestries finished with beads and strung on silver or cord or leather. I talked to Claudia about this and she’s already started experimenting. The possibilities are endless and it would be a great project for beginners and experts alike.
What do you think?
