Cat Eyes Beaded Portrait Pillow by Jayne Somogy Cat Eyes Beaded Portrait Pillow by Jayne Somogy
$ 40.00 In stock
Product description: This tiny hand-beaded pillow (9" by 7") is the perfect complement to almost any decorating scheme. Taken from my original painting entitled “Cat Eyes” (a portrait of Josephine Baker with a leopard, also available on this site) and printed on 100% Pima cotton, I then hand-beaded it with glass bugle beads & Swarovski stones, to highlight this stylized portrait of 1920's entertainer Josephine Baker looking into the eyes of a gorgeous leopard, made it into a pillow (inside lined with muslin), and bordered it with looped fringe made of bugle beads and Swarovski crystals. It is stuffed with polyester fiberfill. Back of pillow is a silky polyester fabric in a jungle print--as pretty as the front! 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!
