This is the third of three Relics that I made recently. This one is made from two beaded tomatillo husks, thread, a thread spool, an old button, and a weird metal hand from somewhere or other.
I collected the tomatillo husks from the ground in my garden. It was interesting to me how much they softened and didn’t break the more I worked with them as I added beads. By the end, they had started to resemble loosely woven fabric, not brittle leaf veins.

they are really beginning to become encrusted with beads. I like this series! I cannot wait until I get husks from my garden!
Thanks! I’ll be curious to know if they’ll be like the cicada husk: the more you’re looking for one, the less likely it will be to find.
