Hope is the Thing with Feathers Necklace

Hope is the thing with feathers necklaceThis necklace was created for a competition and is way outside my comfort zone but I love that about it. The challenge was to incorporate a doodle or zentangle into a piece of jewelry. So…I started with my favorite Emily Dickinson poem and decided to incorporate a blue bird and a stark tree. I painted the bluebird and zentangle tree on a tiny black canvas. Then I embroidered beads around it, continuing the branches and blue sky. The chain is peyote stitch and toggle clasp is also beaded. In the drop down, I incorporated hand stamped verses from the poem and feather like fringe.
