new piece coming together

Hi everyone,
It's been a while due to some severe migraines.  Anyone out there also a migraineur?  Wew--they really do take your breath away.  You know people say childbirth is the worst pain, but I gave birth without painkillers and with pitocin (sp?) and I gotta say, some of my migraines are worse.  But enough complaining.  I am back to work and so happy to be here.  I want to show a piece that evolved from the 100-day challenge. it's just a quick scan, as I haven't had time yet to get it photographed, but I hope you all get the idea.
The piece started as a photograph, which I printed onto fabric, embroidered, quilted, painted,wrote on and beaded.  I have an idea for a whole series like this, but we will see what come of it.

Below are a few of my jewelry pieces.  I will be dropping a few off at the Store @ the deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park.  For anyone in the Boston area, that is a fabulous museum!

Turqouise Druzy (I get awesome stones from Heart of Stone Studio)

The Art Deco Pins go along the "backlace" (i.e., necklace worn on the back) I made to collaborate with fashion designer Maya Meirav.  The dress and backlace are now sold separately, but you can wear the backlace on the back or in the front by using the pins, whereas with the dress, it was sewn in.
