love heart ornament
Each year, I love to create pieces of art, that one can either display on a Christmas tree or leave out all year around. I love to work with old, vintage, tattered, discarded and worn out pieces of fabrics and rework them into a piece of art. What once was cherished, but had out grown it use, I take and recreate a piece of art, that tells a story.
For this piece, I have incorporated vintage pink fabric lace and white fabrics that came from Paris France, along with a piece of stripped purple fabric for the backside. Stitching, ribbon, a handmade bezel that I created and filled with the word, "love" and resin, along with metal bells, that I have applied patina to. I have also added a wire hook, that allows you to display this during the holidays or all year around.
Since I used old and vintage fabrics, some are delicate and need to be handled with care.
This piece measures roughly, 3 3/4 x 6. This is measuring from the top of the hook to the bottom of the heart and from the widest part of the fabrics that extend past the sides.
I will be signing the back of the heart with my signature.
