This is my finished piece ‘The Mermaid’s Lure’ which will be on the Prism at the Kniting and Stitching shows this month in London, Dublin and Harrogate. It is an imaginary fishing fly that would be used to catch a mermaid. The hook is made from Gilded balsa wood, the feathers are freehand machine embroidered silk organza. I had to use an unbreakable dome for the show, so will probably rehome the piece in a larger glass dome I have after the show. A fun piece to do and first in a series of curiosities.
