Kerry Dwyer's stole

My friend Kerry is an interfaith minister in Sydney. She asked me to make a stole for her ages ago but we couldn't decide on a symbol that would encompass an Inter faith message. Then I went to London to visit Watts of Wesminster and found a fabulous book on Ecclesiastic embroidery with this image of a phoenix in it.
But then it turned into THIS... a much better image. Graphic & powerful.
With a hand made tassled fringe.
Painstakingly sewn onto petersham ribbon.

Finished at last.
Let's hope lots of loving couples get to gaze at it on their big day as they kneel in front of Kerry D.
