I've been asked to include the process of how the faces are created and embroidered.
On this particular piece I have used alchohol ink on the background..mixing two colors:
Terracotta and Butterscotch.  The face was glued onto Lacy Stiff Stuff with E6000 glue.
The face was then embroidered with Aiko Brick Red Lined Topaz, Brass Charlottes with Andalusite semi-precious stones on the side, along with vintage Japanese bugle beads accented on the sides.  I'm now starting to surround it with Czech cushioned fire polished stones. TBC...

is not how much information
one has obtained
but rather
how well that information
is reflected upon

Dara \d(a)-ra\ as a girl's name is 
pronounced DAR-ah. It is of Hebrew 
origin, and the meaning of Dara is 
"nugget of wisdom"
