Earth Triptych collage close-up with green stone goddess bead

This close-up features a piece of cotton crochet doily that has been tea-dyed. Cut up the doily and pull out the edges and let the doily be the design element, to add dimension and texture to the collage. I anchored an old Czech bead on top of the doily piece, harvested from a necklace and to the right of that bead, added a green stone goddess bead that I found in Sedona, Arizona. The gold strips of silk are bunched and twisted and tacked into place. My interest in textile manipulation is to not create a "flat" piece.
