Another pear. This one is made from air-drying clay (which stinks, btw), deliberately left roughly moulded with finger prints in it. Then painted and rubbed with a wad of kitchen towel and left to dry again, and then some gold paint rubbed lightly on bits of it. Then stuck down lightly to a piece of patchwork fabric and peyote stitched around with seed beads to form a huge bezel, if you think of the pear as a large cabachon. Then shadow stitched with black embroidery thread (perl or stranded, I can't remember). I also can't remember if I used felt or thin cotton wadding for the wadding.
