Textile Neckpiece

Here are some photographs of a textile necklace that I made earlier this year.
I was aiming for a spring-feel, using lots of appliquéd fabrics then embroidering over the top. Although this piece uses lots of the same techniques as many of my other pieces, for some reason it feels a bit different to me. I think it’s partly because I used a lighter, more linear composition than usual, and partly because there’s a lot more colour variation than in my usual work – the extensive use of the pink edging is what ties it together visually. I really liked the end result though it’s quite a departure from my usual style.

Let me know what you think!
(I’ve just put this piece up on Etsy – You can also check it out there.)
