My inspiration for this piece comes from the Work of the French Painter Henri Rousseau.
I have used two techniques and different types of beads in this piece. The upper, lower, border areas and back middle panel are in peyote technique, done with cylindrical delica seed beads. Middle section is in right angle weave technique, which is a more open weave done in round seed beads. The piece is embellished with more seed beads and crystal beads.

What I find particularly attractive about this Robe is the flared bottom and
the open weave design separating elements of the dense peyote weave
