My design includes three strips that will use different border patterns from the ancient Egyptian jewellery and three different techniques to show them.

From left to right – couched goldwork thread in a spiral design; gold machine embroidery and beading to represent the granulation used on the jewellery; gold Liquid Pearls stars as used on jewellery of Tutankhamen. 135 more words

Assignment 5 Project 10 - additional piece

After finishing my neckpiece I had a couple of other techniques from my theme book sampling that I really wanted to try out. I had really liked the effect I produced using tea bag papers and printing over them with the lotus flower lino block I made, so I wanted to make a wall hanging using this as the background.   330 more words

Assignment 5 Project 10 Review and reflective commentary

Can you see a continuous thread of development from your original drawings and samples to the final designs?

Yes, there is a clear path from the initial sketch of the scarab beetle through to the final product.   302 more words

Assignment 5 Project 10 Stage 4 continued - finished neckpiece

So here it is, the completed neckpiece.  The brief for this project is to make a three dimensional piece using the techniques developed in the earlier assignments and to produce a finished item, or part of an item, that is a “strong but simple idea” and I believe that I have achieved that with this neckpiece.

Assignment 5 Project 10 Stage 4 continued - the supporting panels

The two supporting panels are elongated versions of the wings and they curve up behind the head of the wearer. I had worked out from my samples that I needed two layers of wadding to get the level of padding I wanted for the surface, so the first task was to layer the wadding and top silk onto Wireform and to stitch this with the lotus flower shape I had prepared. 277 more words

Assignment 5 Project 10 Stage 4 continued - making the neckpiece

I’ve now done my samples and planned the final neckpiece so it is time to start making the individual elements for it.

First I took my paper mock up of the neckpiece and worked out the number of large and small wings needed and the directions they faced.   153 more words
