My goal was to create a cross between Steampunk and Victorian, at once feminine and delicate and industrial in feel. I decided to mix freeform peyote and random right angle weave.
I'm afraid the finished pictures I took all turned out blurry when I loaded them into my camera, so I'll take some more later today and post those, but at least you can get a feel for where the design is going from this post.
You can see one of my star washers at the lower left.

Steampunk and Victorian INDEED! You nailed it. This is stunning and very unique. Thank you Karen for joining me this month.ReplyDelete
Love the gin blossom focal you received, and your vision for it. Jeanne certainly put this piece in the right hands - infused with your creativity, it's going to be brilliant!ReplyDelete
Oh wow - very creative! I can see the Steampunk and the Victorian. Very cool design indeed!ReplyDelete
Beautiful design with the lovely black and silver Gin Blossom Jeannie sent to you. I love the combination of the styles and the stitches.
Karen I also marvel at your creations and how comfortable you are with freeform! This is such a wonderful piece you've created!!ReplyDelete
Very cool design! Love the steampunk elements with Jeannies Gin Blossom!ReplyDelete
VictorianPunk!!!! Yay! This is awesome!ReplyDelete
I've always wanted to try free form peyote, but I don't have the "vision" for it. You, on the other hand, most certainly do! So very creative!ReplyDelete
Wow how creative!!ReplyDelete
Oh, wow - a truly unique design! Victorian Steampunk: something I would never have thought to mix, but it looks beautiful in your design :)ReplyDelete
I love your idea in this design, it is going to look stunning. I have tried free form peyote once and it was a disaster...yours looks great. Hope I can get better as I am doing a challeng with it due in January. I just adore your design.ReplyDelete
I bet the finished piece is gorgeous. I can't imagine attempting freeform like you have tackled and I look forward to seeing the final piece :)ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see the final look!ReplyDelete
very very cool and beautifulReplyDelete
