Those babies are staying in place now!

Things were going well until I added the daggers, which flopped when the pendant was held up. I stitched a triangle pattern behind the daggers. That fixed the backwards droop. Now, they drooped forward (sigh).

Next I stitched size 11’s around each dagger and added sequins to pop the piece. I stitched a row of size 11’s around the back as well as I moved between each sequin. That did the trick.

  • I always love to see how other artists resolve artistic problems. In this case, I think the droop was fortunate – the added elements are fabulous in this piece! Thanks for sharing this interesting fix, Terri – I would never have guessed the additions weren’t part of the original plan!
