Guardian of Wonder

I teach a mask workshop and decided it was time for a new sample. Sewing on the cowrie shells was a challenge but I really like the way they look. I've had the feathers for years so it was good to finally use them. Now all I need is for someone to book a workshop!


  1. Karen,

    I love this mask! Fabric for eyes and mouth or?? I use fabric paint for eyes and mouths in my mask quilts, and then outline them with seed beads.

    I have one quilt where I used cowrie shells, but did not sew them on in a line. I used the shells one at a time, throughout the quilt.

    Good job, sweetie!

  2. Thanks! Do you think it is more male or female? I can't decide. Hugs, Karen

  3. Karen, I love your work and am in awe in your ability to create so much texture in your pieces. Nice job! Dena
