X marks the spot #1
This piece is the first "X - Marks the spot". I did it a couple of years ago, it is silk habitoi cut into rectangles that were then stapled in a x pattern. Then the silk pieces were soaked in vinegar which allowed the staples to rust. Then the rusty pieces were hand sewn with copper metallic thread onto silk noil. The staples remain in the silk as embellishment. In January of this year it was juried into the exhibit Form, not Function. It also won the Award of excellence at the show.
