Crepe de Chine coat and handpainted silk large cabochon pendant

My first venture into having some of my silk works displayed on real models. This shawl has an allover leaf design in gold and copper… individually stencilled in “random” pattern. The shawlcan be adjusted to many styles with the hand painted and stencilled matching 57mm pin. The patterning does not show in ths photo but the lime green looks lovely.

Wearable Art… silk fashion

They are simple but very floaty and elegant. The fabric is so sensuous and the colours come alive when they are steamed.Rainbow shawl
