Gorgeous color and new and interesting shapes is what I'm aiming for this season. I shared some of my new items with my good friend, Deb Golden, a very stylish woman, and she told me that it was as if I was creating scarves that would double as jewelry! I thought to myself, "Yes, that's exactly what I was hoping for as my work evolved!" So, the new things for fall and winter are all about scarves as jewelry. Purses too! I've embellished some of my purses with antique drawer hardware as a way to use the beauty of the shapes and the patina of age in a new and exciting way.
Natural linen laminated on brown wool with red wool accents. Antique drawer hardware sewn on as an embellishment over the magnet closure and to add additional weight to the front purse flap. Felted all in one piece over a resist.
