The Raised Cup stitch is just so cool. I love the way it looks. I have repeated it a number of times in the above two photos. I also tried doing it with gold beads, top photo. Will definitely be doing more of this stitch. Thanks to Sharon B for the instructions. I really appreciate being reminded of this stitch!
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
