Featuring one-of-a-kind wearable works of art created by a unique process called Nuno felting. This technique, done by hand, bonds pure silk fabric with luxurious fibers to create brand new fabrics which are drapable, lightweight and sheer.

This is the scarf that started out as a concept, a palette inspired by a peacock feather, as described in the previous post.
A hard day's work? Not really. Yes, it took large portions of several days, but it didn't seem like work at all. I think the reason I love Nuno felting is that it forces me to not concentrate. Creating these designs takes more feeling, intuition, than thinking.
Playing with color, fiber and texture.
