The Fantastic Sarah Sequins is having a blog hop. Yeay Sarah! Yeay Sequins! Who could resist that beautiful sparkle and shine? Obviously not me. Did you know sequins even have a Wikipedia page? It's not very long, but it states "evidence exists that gold sequins were being used as decoration on clothing or paraphernalia in the Indus Valley as early as 2500 BC". Ladies, we are making HISTORY. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequin
I've never actually used sequins in my bead embroidery, so this was a challenge. I bought a rainbow of colors, because they were so darn pretty. However, I only ended up using one color, my very favorite sequin color, silver.
My original thought with this piece was a whirlpool. I think it ended up looking more like a space galaxy thing. My muse has chosen blue lately.
I wasn't sure what to do with this piece and then while I was at the Salvation army a few days ago I found a nice wooden box ($1.50) that seemed the perfect size.
And although I haven't actually glued it on yet, it fit quite well.
This is a bit off subject. I thought it was a fun idea to trace what this box originally contained. It says Leigh White Neckwear. I figured that was some kind of tie. Indeed, Leigh White is a designer that did limited edition unique art neckties. I found a few images. The one on the bottom left is called "Electric Chair" which I thought was kind of an unusual subject for a tie. I wonder which tie was in my box . . .
Thanks for stopping in my little corner, and a huge THANK YOU to the wonderful and dynamic Ms. Sequins for giving us all an opportunity to sparkle and shine. Here is the list of sequentastic creators. I can't wait to hop around and get my dose of beauty for the weekend.
