Art to Wear
Pendants, silk scarves and necklaces
Inspired by the natural world seascapes, landscapes, flowers butterflies birds etc
These are made from my original miniature paintings.
They are mostly painted in acrylic and varnished to seal. They are mounted onto a silver plated bezel and can be paired with a chain or cord and ribbon with fastener. The round ones are 2.5cm across and some of them have a concave glass cabochon over the image.
Silk scarves and necklaces
These are hand painted or dyed and the colours are fixed to make them permanent.
The silk scarves are washable.
For some of them I have used the Japanese shibori technique that involves folding in different ways before dying to make the patterns. One of the methods I like is called arashi shibori. The silk is wrapped around a pole then scrunched up to make tight pleats. The dyes are added then the silk steamed to fix. The pattern usually makes diagonal lines. Arashi means storm in Japanese and the diagonal pattern of lines is like rain.
