Bonsai Complete

Bonsai is now completed and has been shown to the client (who cried). If you'd like to see a close-up of the beading and quilting, you can double click on the pictures. It is constructed of batik, thai silk, vintage kimono and yukata fabrics, fabric mat (fabricated), hand beaded with pearl seed beads, swarovski crystals, and hand quilted. It is about 30" wide by about 42" tall (estimates). My personal "chop" is located on the lower left side in red/white silk.
