A dear friend had been saving this zipper for many years and chose to gift it to me.
. Now it's
been transformed in to a Functional Zipper Brooch. Perfect to
celebrate July 4th, or any patriotic occasion. Notice how the white
zipper teeth and zipper pull highlight the red and blue fabrics. 4 1/2 inches in diameter with pin back ready to wear.
I'm having trouble loading photos but I have a new artist statement:
Mixed Media Artist
Julie Bagamary began
hand sewing around age 9 and received her first sewing machine at age 12 as a
Christmas gift. Many years later and living in the mountains of Western
Carolina, she continues her artistic endeavors. Many of Julie’s pieces are
inspired by the scenery of the mountains. Through the use of batik fabrics,
quilting and mixed media techniques she creates one-of-a kind art pieces.
Julie started the Choose Life Studio with a couple of goals as her
primary focus for her art work. Julie wants her work to encourage others though
Truth and Life based on Scripture. Her art pieces have a Biblical scripture as
part of the presentation to allow the viewer to better connect with the piece
as well as with God. One other goal for Julie is to be able to support missions
work through contributing a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her
innovative art pieces.
