A commission?!

Someone from the internets asked if I would be able to make something for him to give his girlfriend for Christmas. He said she was into jellyfish and fiber art, and we sussed out some details and I ended up making this-

The bell is sewing machine lace.. I sewed on water soluble plastic, washed away most of the plastic, and then set the resulting piece of lace in a mold to dry. There are two layers - the lavender outer layer, and then a darker purple layer that is attached to the bottom edge of the lavender part.

There's a lot of metallic thread in the lavender part - it's much less pink in person.

The tentacles are some vintage lace trim I had in my ribbon box, ruffled up.
The lace looks pretty neat with the light coming through it.

I hope she liked it!
