Strawberries On Ice

A cone in embroidered silk topped with my Hanah silk ribbon flowers and silk velvet strawberries all dressed for the festive season.  Strawberries On Ice  
I didn't realize in how many of my designs I had used the silk velvet until I was looking at them to share.  I guess it's a love affair!  How about you - what textures do you love?

Divine Pears

Working with hand dyed silk velvet has to be one of my favourite things especially when it is lushly embroidered with Hanah silk ribbon flowers, chenille and ribbon leaves and enhanced with sequins beads and diamonties. The silk has such a beautiful bloom that you often don't see until it is made up.
I've sculpted two different coloured pears because I just love the colour plays.
