This is the hand sewn jewel using sewn on gems and surrounded by beads sewn on sideways after realising they look so much more effective that way round. I have cut it off the enbroidey hoop and left tabs which i turned under and sewed together as the back. Using the same long thread i sewed the jewel onto the top of one of my shrines.
i think it looks really effective!
Felt shrine with hand sewn jewel and other embellishments.
