Here is the participant list:
Catherine ( you are here )
Just right click on each lady listed above and you can visit each website to view what can be done with Shibori. Shibori ribbon was brought to popularity by Sherri Sarafini and now each Bead Embroiderer has been taking this specialized Silk ribbon new new heights. Cuffs, handbags, neckpieces, a very versitile textile that just, " oozes bead embroidery ".
My piece actually started at the Florida Jewelry Artist Retreat this past January when Anne Hess was presented, " Angels in Disguise " to our retreat group. She demonstrated the use of Air Dry clay materials to develop face cabachons which we then use Metalic Rub ons and Pearl Ex pigments to highlight and add color to the air dryed cabachon. Funny enough I had Tanya's Shirbori sample laid out on the project table next to the face cab and one of those " Wala Moments " occured.
This piece is currently a scarf pin but she has not stopped evolving and I see a handbag in her future......
After visiting each participant leave us a note and tell us your thoughts.
I would love to take a moment and thank Tanya for putting this Shibori Blog Hop together. I had a blast!
