Beaded Portrait Pillow of Woman from Chinese Opera by Jayne Somogy  Beaded Portrait Pillow of Woman from Chinese Opera by Jayne Somogy
$ 40.00 In stock
Product description: This tiny hand-beaded pillow (8.5” by 6.5”) is the perfect complement in an Asian-style décor or almost any decorating scheme. Taken from my original painting entitled “Woman from Chinese Opera with Tattoos” (also available on this site) and printed on 100% Pima cotton, I then hand-beaded it with lass bugle beads, Swarovski crystals, and acrylic beads & jewels to highlight this stylized portrait of a beautiful dancer from the Chinese Opera in her elaborate headpiece, made it into a pillow (inside lined with muslin), and bordered it with looped fringe made of silver-lined beads and faceted blue beads. It is stuffed with polyester fiberfill. Back of pillow is a beautiful linen fabric in a blue and white geometric design--as pretty as the front! PLEASE NOTE--Although the Swarovski crystal at the top of the headpiece appears yellow in the photos, it is actually a CLEAR stone; it appears yellow because it is reflecting the yellow of the background it was photographed on. Please note that this is NOT a pillow COVER but an actual pillow, and the price includes shipping. This little art piece pillow is a wonderful addition to any style of décor in any type of setting and also makes a wonderful gift. An artistic keepsake, a perfect gift, a tiny masterpiece!
