"Tenderness Felt"

(Congratulations Sarah! you did it!)
Things have been crazy for me as all mom's know the last few weeks of school are always hectic but add a high school graduation complete with out of town guest... and I think you get the idea!


Over the last few days I have been able to get back into the stuido as I am frantically working away trying to build up an inventory for fiberfest:June 24th -28th (day passes are now being sold if you would like to attend) and for Idyllwild art: july 4th and 5th (seats are still available)


Here is the lay out of "our wings"


and this is what the lay out ended up looking like just before I start to sew.


These dresses are waiting for hand details.

fabric cuffs

I made a batch of cuffs, here are two Poetry Fabric Cuffs.

"Tenderness Felt"

This necklace has a brass sparrow that hangs from etched copper on a vintage brass chain embellished with hand dyed silk and tiny faceted green garnet.

Your work blows my mind! Your dresses are amazing, and then you show an intricate necklace with hammered brass- it makes me wonder what you can't create. I love all of the details and care you put into each piece. Thanks as always for the inspiration!
