The Goddess Series

I just finished three pieces for my "Goddess Series" part of the featured artist show entitled "Myth and Magic" at the Artists' Undertaking Gallery in Occoquan, VA. The other featured artist is printmaker, Patricia Smith.
The first image is of a necklace I named "Aphrodite" depicting a female figure rising from the sea. She is done in herringbone stitch with surface embellishment of beads for the seaweed and hair.
The second is a necklace "Athena" and depicts lightning and rain. This necklace is done in ladder stitch and peyote.
The third necklace is "Persephone" for the goddess of springtime and is done in herringbone stitch.
