Fluffy Fiber Cookies!

Actually, they will become felted flowers and cuffs. Wool and hand painted silk fibers have are laid out.

  Fibers have been wet down with warm soapy water. 

They remind me of Dale Chihuly's glass flowers at the Bellagio in Las Vegas in the photo above, taken by my mother, Anna Marie Miazga.

The bands and and flowers have been felted....
and will be made into a felted cuff like this...

Custom Order!

A necklace that drapes like a scarf! It certainly is eye catching and lightweight for summer. This was a custom order. The dyes used on the silk fabric combined to create such a pretty colors.

I am honored when someone asks me to make a custom item. Creating for a person is very different than creating out of the blue. I try to get a sense of the person as I create. And hope I get it right!
