Studio Sunday-Spirit Book Pages
A Spirit Book usually starts with a cradle. I then decide on the paper and the size. I tear the pages and begin working on them. In my jewelry class last year I fell in love with the transformation of wire from round to flat. I tried using spiral pieces modeled after one I made for a necklace but found that they overwhelmed the stitching. Instead I surrounded beads with circles of flattened brass wire and made them the center of spirals stitched with gold thread. I'm about a third of way through the pages which will rest in a cradle of bittersweet.
