Lauren Furey is a fiber artist who specializes in custom minister's stoles. This one is for a Unitarian Universalist minister in Syracuse, NY. The guidelines were intersectional feminist empowerment in pinks with texture and a flaming chalice (symbol of the UU faith). She chose women as trees because they are strong and bending. They are connected to each other through their roots and branches. The symbol for "woman" was turned into the flaming chalice. Materials include glass beads, Czech glass beads, Swarovski Crystals, high end batiks, Dupioni Silk, ceramic faces and hand dyed Shades packs in Sepia and Walnut for the flesh tones.
For sharing, Lauren received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.
Lauren shared several photos for us to see the beautiful details of her work.
