Textile Sketches: Sheer Neutrals

For my small textile sketches, I create self imposed limitations. This series of sketches was inspired by Leonardo di Vinci's sketchbook.  The sketch is of explosive canon balls so I wanted to use materials in complete opposition to this. The above sketch is bead work on transparent organza. I had to plan the embroidery carefully as the back side shows through to the front side.

This one uses silk fibers, bamboo rods and beads.

I made my own springs by winding wire over a pencil.

And here,I'm using mulberry paper and beads.
