pendant 0822

TECHNICS_ hand embroidery (and a few local needle punches)
YARN_ DMC 310 threads, partly waxed for the embroidery, and various off-white DMC fibres for the punched surface
FABRIC OUTSIDE & STUFFING _ tiny left overs scraps, jersey and a cotton weave

A knotted strip of jersey forms the base on which tiny bits of cloth are attached to create both surface and shape. Part of the black DMC yarn was old, dry and dusty. Waxing those threads improved the strength and added patina.
