Right now specially dyed, one-of-a-kind offerings are for sale on Bigcartel and jewellery made from repurposed silk remains exclusively on Etsy. It's been a while since I updated the Etsy shop.
With that in mind, I inspected my vintage silk collection, considered the hot pinks and electric blues and settled for something quieter. Even the wine red is not as bright as it looks here.
Continuing the theme of elusive colours, I picked smocking threads that nearly (but decidedly not quite) blend into the background fabric and add ambiguity to the solid ground.
And not to forget: the press from the title of the post refers to my Peppermint necklace being featured on the lovely Mixed Plate blog! See Liana's Friday finds right here.
