Create an unusual decorative pouch that hangs from a beaded necklace. A small rectangle shape acts as the background for a seabed created from beads, silk ribbon embroidery and free-form embroidery. The base and the lining are Thai silk. Use shells, beads, metallic threads, silk ribbon, fabrics, and buttons to create your work of art. These are art-to-wear pieces of jewelry and will be sure to draw comments from everyone. The pouch measures 2 "x 4 ". Featured in Belle Armoire
