The Empress Dowager's New Bib

#110. Made for the Precious Materials exhibition.

Been wanting to incorporate embroidery into the New Jewels and I've finally done it. Woo!

The Diving Carp & Waves motif is originally from the MonoWing made last year. I thought since I'm showing the MonoWing at Precious Materials too, I should repeat the motif so there's a link between the pieces besides the embroidery work.

But I will not repeat the design again because no two pieces of The Empress Dowager's New Jewels can ever look the same, remember?

If you'd like to own this one-off piece, The Empress Dowager's New Bib is for sale at the exhibition. And after in the blog-shop if not one buys it.
