Serving as a base for this unusual art piece is a rectangle of warm gold wool. Attached on top is two pieces of cotton fabric, one blue and the other teal. Centered over the blue cotton is a reclaimed strip of kantha cloth. On top of the entire composition is three hand-made beads. Two of the beads are constructed from thread covered, copper coils. The third unique bead was made from tightly wound fabric strips. Decorative hand stitching was used to secure the layers together and add pizazz to the entire composition. Zoom in to see the detail of both the stitching and the beads. The beads provided the inspiration for the art piece’s name. All of them were made by Jimenas Treasures.
The entire grouping was attached to an 8”x10” frame covered with white canvas. Added to the back of the frame is a paper barrier to protect it from pests and dust, a sawtooth hanger, silicone bumpers to help keep the frame level as well as aide in ventilation and an itemized label describing the art piece.
This wonderful specimen would make a lovely addition to your home.
