Making: Silk Scarves in the shop!

Super happy to share with you some finished images of the silk scarves I’ve been working on as well as let you know they are now available in my shop online! >Click hereif you just want to just head over there and get right to it.

I am offering four different designs for 2014 and I’m super excited to share them with you! I’ve been hard at work developing exactly how I wanted these to turn out and I’m so pleased with how they have come along.  Each detail was carefully considered, from the large ‘easy to wear’ size to the time developing the dye patterns that would create a complimentary texture to pair with my hand drawn patterns. It’s been a great learning experience and I’ve enjoyed every minute. I can’t wait to keep making more of these. Click on each image if you would like to see more detail!
