Dancing in the wind
Did you ever dream about dancing? About having wings and just drifting in the wind and twirling, diving and sailing on gentle breezes?
I dreamt about being an anemone flower and sway in the wind.
With this inspiration in mind, the goldwork embroidery of The Dance in the wind was born.
I encountered several challenges in the process. The first was the design. I wanted to draw a stylized flower that will show dancing in the wind and have an opportunity to use new goldwork embroidery techniques to try them out.
And I did it.
The most challenging was wrapping pearl purl with cotton thread. I extended pearl purl wire and tried to wrap the cotton thread. What do you think happened? It failed.
After several tries, I finally managed to begin at the right side. The video of my failed and successful attempts can be viewed on my Instagram IGTV.
