Personal Talisman with Rebecca Purcell
When you are given the opportunity to sit at the feet of the great artist Rebecca Purcell, you jump on it! I was fortunate to snag a spot in a week-long zoom workshop she presented called "Crafting a Personal Talisman: Object and Image as Portal to the Creative Self" and hosted by Mortal Anatomy in June 2021. A wonderful, heady, transformative experience, I am still swooning with inspiration from it all. Here is a photo of my finished project, made with a mysterious metal key, glass beads, vintage sequin and button, pearl, tiny ruby bead, vintage sari and kimono fabrics, vintage seam binding, silk cording and vintage metallic threads. It rolls up and is bound up to keep the contents safe.
