Finished




Two pieces, commissioned by a friend of my sister's, are finished and on their way. I love making these scarves. I wade in colors, and, slowly, the pieces come together. The amazing thing is how the piece changes when it's worn. It becomes almost musical: the relationship among the colors changes depending on how the scarf in draped, and changes again when the wearer moves. I'm partial to silks, but I take all kinds of soft, drapey bits. You'll find old dresses and vintage kimono twinkling in among the hand-dyed silk and store-bought rayons.
