Dainty Bullets Of Chrysoprase & Blue Topaz

Catalogue Item #4 - work-in-progress.

For Bella the Superior Courier. She's a petite girl so I made her a less-chunky more-dainty piece using only smaller "stones" of "chrysoprase" in a vibrant pastel green and "blue topaz".

The Marimekko fabric used here is the Maalaisruusu, first printed in 1964. Again by Maija Isola, who designed the Unikko print that we've come to associate with the Finnish textile company.

I forgot to photograph the actual piece of fabric that I used but it was of the same flower, only of a much larger scale. It gone now...cut into "gems".
