The “Hearth of the Home” was made this past summer for an old High School Classmate. She approached me on this the year before, and I wasn’t sure exactly what had in mind, but gave it a try. When I saw it on her Hearth! I was very pleased at how it turned out.
I used hand dyed silk organza, discharged black fabric for the wood and I used hand dyed silk and other sheers to create this piece. It is embellished with Swarovske crystals and shimmery metallic threads.
