I have been making some wall hangings for a consignment gallery. These are woven with purchased wool yarn as the warp. I used some of my handwoven yarns in the weft of the fabric on these hangings. I also added some embellishments.
The second one has beads that I made with polymer clay probably 3 or 4 years ago.
The third one has two pieces of crepe myrtle bark woven through the fabric as embellishment.
The fourth has a slice of a shell that is attached as an embellishment - since all the blue colors remind me of the ocean. You may also notice the other colors, yellow, pinks and browns giving the impression of a beach at sunset.
The piece with hand made beads was the first of these that I wove. Since the colors reminded me of these beads, I pulled out the beads and added them to the work.
The hanging sticks for these are made of locally sourced bamboo. (thanks to my brother for gathering it for me!)
