Time sure flies! It’s been about a year since I posted any projects on LJs. I have been on a learning curve and delving into the world of marquetry so was experimenting and practising the technique. My practice pieces were not worthy of an audience ;)! Thanks to my good friend Elaine who gave me lots of inspiration and guidance, I have improved my technique but still have lots to learn.
I started this bust 4 years ago. My great niece was my very willing model. I had already done a bust of her brother. I worked on it on and off and then began focusing more on it in the past year determined to get it finished. The front panel of the marquetry I had completed last summer and since then have learnt a lot more about glueing and sand shading. Much as I would have like to redo this panel, my great niece liked it so it stays!
Thanks to Sheila Landry for the Celtic pattern I used for the pendant and the earrings. http://www.sheilalandrydesigns.com/product/SLD494
Thanks for looking.
