A quick experiment with cotton gauze.
Cotton gauze layers with fabric threads suspended between the layers. Stiffened with wall paper glue. It has an organic look to it, and I think one can play with that. This one holds a few favourite semi-precious stones on my bedside table.
I am planning to make a few more, but this time using fabric strips, felt and paper ephemera
between the layers of gauze. Also, I have experimented with dyeing the gauze to get some interesting effects.
