What I've been working on.....

       

Wrapjac
The Wrapjac is a jacket with a built in scarf. It is all silk, hand dyed and painted. This jacket comes in any of my dyed variegated colors. There are 5 ways that I’ve found to wear it and only four are shown here. There’s simply throwing one of the front pieces over the other shoulder and using a broach to pin it in place. Then the scarf fabric in the front can be wrapped around the waist and tied in the back to make a slim, fitted look. There are two points on the front bottom of the scarf addition that can be tied together and worn long down the front. When that knot is lifted over the head and placed in the back of the neck there is the short, full collar effect that gives a bolero look. Of course, it can be worn with the scarf open and untied in the front.

Poncho
























Either one of these tops will add drama to an old outfit. Great over a turtle neck in the winter or low cut dress or camisole in the warmer months. No side seams - can be tied at the bottom edge or left open to flow like a butterfly wing. This is our most popular design, with the see through windows both front and back. Each color is available in crinkled crepe or double weave. Both are hand washable. Windows contain stained glass, sea shells, charms, gold rocks, glass beads and are located front and back. Beaded "drop" front and back at bottom of windows.


Diamond Shawl


Deliciously silky, these satin drapes will delight and warm your soft skin. Made from yards of hand dyed and washed Charmeuse Satin and set with windows filled with all the fun treasures that are in the Windows Scarf. A diamond shaped window is framed by two tucks that helps hold the shawl on your shoulders. A crystal catch in the front also helps keep the shawl in place. We promise these Shawls will delight the wearer. Can be worn with the diamond in front or in back. A stunning effect!  Perfect for draping over your shoulders at the theater or a special cocktail event. A great gift idea!

Made from silk crepe and charmeuse satin.
