I primarily work with silk and merino wool. They are both natural fibers.
Although the wool is lightly layered on the silk, it provides a great deal
of warmth! The wool is wet-felted to the silk which gives some dimension to
each garment or accessory.
The wraps or “cáchos” are silk with panels of wool or all silk, using a small
amount of wool to create a buttonhole. The silk is dyed or manipulated using
shibori techniques prior to dyeing. For people wanting something a little shorter,
I've designed silk/wool capelets. Wool is attached on one side of the chiffon that
creates a wonderful texture on the surface. All silk/wool accessories are handwashable!
The necklaces are wire-knitted with artistic wire with semi-precious stones.
All findings are sterling or Bali silver. The earrings are also wire-knitted with
24 gauge sterling silver wire.
