I tried to stay as close to the original work as possible, although not having access to the same materials meant that some of it had to change; however on the whole I think it came out even better than the original and I'm really glad that I had the opportunity to make it again for what will be a great exhibition!
Here's some photos of the new work:

I painted my frame for this work pink to add a fresh, modern finish to it. Using traditional materials (beads, sequins, goldwork materials) in new ways and combining them with unusual or modern materials (fishing line, neon and metallic thread) in a simple sampler like this is a really fun way to stay inspired and broaden your abilities as an artist.
The Textile Textures exhibition will run from April 29th - June 4th 2017 and entry is completely freeeeeee!
