A secret...............................liaison

Last year, around August time, my dear friend Nefer Kane - she who makes the beautiful Art Dolls and is one of the most talented Artists I have ever known, asked me if I would make something for her. It was to be an exchange - a piece of crystal embroidered material for a doll made to my request...............
The result of this was that I received the amazingly beautiful 'Queen of the Night' from Mozart's 'Magic Flute', and Nefer got a bit of cloth with some crystals on it. I thought it was a bit one sided, but, as most Artists do, Nefer played down the work she had done on my doll - so here I will play down the work I did on the material!
It is to be incorporated into one of Nefer's designs, so you will be able to see it in it's full glory when she has used it, until then, here are some photos................
The material is silk, and the gold beads are 24kt gold plated, the crystals are all Swarovski - which made them very difficult to photograph!


  1. what a beautiful secret...liaison !
    Congrats to both of you, that's so gorgeous !

  2. Beautiful...how nice it will be for you to see your bead embroidery on one of Nefer's dolls, bet you can't wait to see her finished doll.

  3. I must say that the incredible piece Peter made for me was muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch better than the doll I made on his request.
    But, but, but... I have a plan. <--- machiavellian attitude.

    The doll will be finished soon...

    I <3 you JUST BECAUSE Peter...

  4. Hmmm. You two are quite a pair. I think I remember a previous.....liaison.

    Your crystalized cloth is beautiful.

  5. What a nice idea, and a lovely piece of work.

  6. Peter, this is exceptional.
