Flame in the Lotus
Beaded Book
8" X 7.5" X 2"

Flame in the Lotus -- Hand beaded and embroidered book finished in spring of 2013. 8" X 7.5" X 2". This project uses layers of tulle separately and consecutively as trans-formative image. The construction is based on wire and tube hinging and includes 2 small quilts, 9 embroidered & beaded pages and hours of bead weaving using Preciosa crystals, size 11 and larger seed and bugle beads, pearls and agate rings surrounded by peyote stitch.
