I've been revisiting a technique I've used in the past - mixed media pendents.
This photograph is my starting point:
It's Sugar Loaf, one of the many geological curiosities here on Mackinac Island. It stands 75' tall and in the fall is surrounded by a patchwork of bright maples and the greens of pine and cedar. The best view is from Point Lookout, which gives a panorama of the woods with the lake in the background.
I transferred the photo onto silk and then embellished the details with embroidery in silk and cotton and, of coarse, beads!
