This triangular scarf measures 12"x12"x21"
The 3 types of fabric I offer for your scarf are:
A) The 100% silk chiffon is a shear lightweight fabric, very soft to the touch and flows breezily with your movements.
Available in: Creamy Ivory Silk Chiffon, Matte Brown Silk Chiffon, Lime Green with a hint of Olive Silk Chiffon
B) The sheer black 100% silk organza is a solid, durable medium weight fabric with a bit of a stiff hand. It is like the night sky... the perfect backdrop to set the colors of the embellishments off with a cosmic flare.
C) The ultra sheer poly organza (100% polyester) is a very-very loose weave. This lightweight fabric is available in:
Black- ultra loose weave
Russet Brown- loose weave
Shimmery White- ultra loose weave
Olive Green- loose weave
The ultra sheer organza offers the exact sexy bohemian look I was aiming for. This is the most delicate fabric by far and as such extra care must be taken to protect it from unnecessary harsh wear and tear. This is especially important when used as a wrist decoration which can be more exposed to external elements than a neck scarf. Please wear this collection with an understanding that it is to be treated like fine lingerie... revered as a couture slice of Heaven!
This is how I make them
First I cut perfect squares using a fool proof time-consuming technique then hand finish the edges. As I gained more confidence at doing this I have begun to occasionally use contrasting thread to enhance the handmade quality of the piece. Next I apply Swarovski crystals and pearls to both the front and back with a sturdy metallic thread and I double and sometimes triple knot both ends. This is a very tedious process and well worth it for the effect!
Care: Hand wash in lukewarm water with a little liquid soap and lay flat on a towel to dry. Enjoy!
I appreciate hand made objects d'art and the old world style rarely found in America. I am influenced by great artists and designers and pride myself on developing original works of art that are inspired by others. I never copy others. That would be beneath the true artist within.
Art is Freeing
It allows a free flow of energy- from the Universe/God through the artist's hands into the finished product. You don't always know what the end result will be when you dive in wholeheartedly. I find this to be a thrilling experience.
The act of being creative... making art creates even more creativity... creation is a wonderful thing.
