Overcast


This is what today looked like. 
Overcast and a bit melancholy, as if contemplating the end of summer.

Feathers and Crystals Flower Headpiece


This veiled headpiece was a recent custom order for an August bride. 
The stark white flower has crystals in the centre, ranging from clear to silver. The headpiece also has handmade tulle leaves, immaculate white feathers and white Russian veil. The picture hardly does it justice. 
The bride, I'm happy to say, loved it!

Cherry Red Flower Mini Pouch Necklace




This little pouch pendant is one of a series made with natural cotton canvas and deep cherry red embellishments.


I love this combination of colours and I love the contrast of the 'plain' cotton canvas with the rich satin of the flower and the dupioni silk of the narrow bow.


I made these little pendants with the intention of having the little pouch to carry a keepsake or good luck charm with you at all times.


I'd actually also like these attached to a plain clothespin. To pin onto a jacket or top.

Country Road


There's nothing like driving down winding country roads on a hot summer day! 
The distinct smell of the greek countryside which is a unique mix of native herbs, shrubs, greenery, hot earth and dry grass is as intoxicating as the scenery.

Miniature Bag in Red and White


Handmade miniature bag in natural cotton canvas with red flower and pom pom details.


A whimsical little handbag for a doll's outfit or for a little girl to play with.


It measures about 8 cm or 3 inches across - that's counting the floral and ribbon embellishments.

Mini Shantung Silk Pouch Pendant


These little silk pouches are destined to become pendants in a series of textile necklaces that I'm working onThey're made from shantung silk which is an absolute favourite fabric of mine to work with and this particular one is a shade of subtly shimmering gold which I adore! 
They're already in various stages of embellishment.
