by Serena Partridge
Fairy Tale Single Stocking, Ivory with looped ribbons.
The gift box containing the tiny stocking is 5 x 21 cm.
All of Serena's works are mixed media but predominantly made from paper and including materials of vintage or antique origin (book covers, end papers, lace trim, cut steel beads, minuscule seed beads and postcards). All stockings are hand stitched with tiny quilting needles. Heels are made up from many layers of thin card that are meticulously cut and stacked, before sanding back. The petite shoes and stockings can be attributed to famous characters from existing fairy tales, or can inspire fanciful new ones.
This work is shown at Atelier Beside the Sea as part of Fairy Tale.
