Big Eye Cross
The Parade Series
16x12x3.75 

The PARADE Series is about how we grapple with the fear of the unknown during a time of human crisis, and the silver linings that can shine so brightly. While self-quarantined, I started to make little dolls and a giant beaded PEEP. Then the idea of making a parade for Easter 2020 (my 55th birthday) while sheltering in place popped into my mind and stuck. The parade ensemble became the 800 block of Royal Street in New Orleans, where a Gay Easter Parade usually passes by Myth Gallery's open doors. 

Big Eyed Cross just needed to be pink for Easter and hope. This old matchstick folk art piece has a decoupaged picture of Christ behind the big eye and the bottom crystal projects out from the heart held in Christ's hand. 

Big Eyed Cross was made from a variety of repurposed materials. 

-A large mid century folk art matchstick cross. 
-Antique zippers.
-Glass Italian seed beads circa 1800.
-Old assorted glass beads and stones, European.
-Swarovski flatback crystals.
-Druzy beads.
-Hand-carved shell flowers.
-Contemporary glass beads from Japan and the Czech Republic.
-Rhinestone chain from the Czech Republic.
-A contemporary human resin eye.


All materials were hand placed using a mosaic technique.
