I, like the Victorians, have a slight hand obsession. Hands allow us to be independent participants in our lives. They help us to communicate and to express ourselves. They are our first place of physical connection to the world around us, our first point of intimacy.
The Victorian Hand was a popular motif, and represented loyalty, strength, romance and fidelity. This hand is embroidered in single strand grey floss, and the antique beads are shades of blues and pale purple.
