A combo of terra cotta and gold, framed in birch, to pin on your lapel. This piece is inspired by lichens, natures doilies, that cover our trees in beauty. It's a marriage of textural fiber and smooth bark, and perfect for the nature-lover in you.

I've made felt by wet-felting wool roving in a terra cotta orange, adorned it with a heart-shaped clump of french knots in gold, and fitted it into a frame I've made of birch bark. The sides have been left natural and the soft white of the bark is a nice compliment to the color it holds.

I've finished the back with a piece of black felt that I created from wool garments. A pinback has been sewn securely beneath the backing.

This small, uniquely shaped piece is about 1.5" wide, 1.25" tall, and is about .5" deep.

Made in my non-smoking home/studio
