  • $30.00


Harriet Powers was an African-American slave, folk artist and quilt maker from rural Georgia. She used traditional appliqué techniques to record local legends, Bible stories, and astronomical events on her quilts.

A paper image is affixed and finished to steel with a product that creates an oil painting like look and texture and renders the image UV protected and water resistant. Steel is lightweight, comfortable and sturdy. Necklaces are finished with copper colored chain with a lobster claw clasp, all lead and nickel free. If you select a pendant, they come on 18 inches of satin cord finished with a lobster claw clasp.
Questions are welcome.
