For several years the local frame store held a miniature show every other year. When making miniatures, I like to do a series. In the ongoing effort to creatively use items from my collection, I selected 4 African female charms and designed four miniatures around them. All of them feature yet more African beads from the collection. The stitching patterns are taken from African mudcloth designs.
Design each piece to be unique, but also work as part of a whole. Variations on a theme if you will.
