This piece features a bejewelled and gilded skull inspired the catacomb saints. This embroidered skull is embellished with golden thread, gilded chains, glass beads, and metal recycled from broken vintage jewellery.
The embroidered wall art is 3" (7.6cm) in diameter.
Part of our ' Smoke & Mist ' range, this hoop art was created by forming a base of black tulle, then applying applique, embroidery and beading on the thin lace. The back is not covered as this range allows light through to play with shadow and transparency through the smoky tulle. The tulle is gathered and securely stitched in several places at the rear with stitches that blend with the dark lace and enhance the effect of swirling smoke.
