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 that came from a ball gown dating late 1800's, along with some vintage fabric and lace that came from Paris France. Stitching, ribbon, a handmade bezel that I created and filled with the word, "wings" 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 x 5 3/4. This is measuring from the top of the hook to the bottom of the heart and from the widest parts of the fabrics that extend past the sides of the heart.
I will be signing the back of the heart with my signature.
