Kristall no 2: Opal

Kristall no 2: Opal

The Opal is a shiny and colourful gem. It changes it’s intensity and colors depending on the way you look at it. I wanted to capture the dynamic and playful colors with this one. While the center is very solid and compact, the mor you go to the outer sections the more it disintegrates into a hint of stitches and paling colors.

The making of this new mandala in the yet small series of crystal-themed embroideries:
