destiny is made known silently

No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our life are made. Destiny is made known silently.
— Agnes de Mille (1905–1993)

This is another "sculptural" temari - an original "free form" design intended to be displayed with the north pole at the top or facing forward. I wanted to convey quietness yet strength; using ecru on ecru the pattern is subtle; fine gold highlights add grace.

Thread wrap in ecru; S6 division #8 perle. Embroidery in matching ecru with a few highlights in metallic gold. The quote by Agnes de Mille is in the bell box along with 27 brass rings. Circumference: 9.5 inches / 24.5 cm; diameter: 3 inches / 7.8 cm. Completed 25 April 2012 (no. 114).
