NEW! Place des Vosges and Amber Ocean Lights!
"I try to capture the "Island" feeling by having the sea and the lagoon breaking waves at the outer edge. More or less. In the water you will see a floating Loggerhead Turtle, and some bright Pacific fishes - 4 different pairs.
More inside you have tiny islands with palm trees.... there will be more shells, with PEARLS.....You will see wonderful flowers of this Island and a turtle which is created from Blackwork, using a traditional Tattoo as inspiration.....You will see motives of traditional Quilts as well as the decorative green ankle-adornments of the dancing women. In the center you have a piece of the Sea again, inspired by a Tattoo, embellished with lots of b e a d s and Sparklies - and framedby Tiaré Medaillions.
Lots of flowers like Heliconia, Hibiscus, Anthurium and Passiflora. Tiny Mantas, beaded as well as beautiful shells in different colors frame the outer parts of the sea like a lagoon. The pearls in the pearl shell can be stitched with beads -- or you splurge and sew on some pearls from your various strands of Tahiti Pearls (grin)"
