The image of spread wings has been associated with protection for thousands of years. Powerful and majestic like an ancient god extending his protection over the ruling dynasty or enveloping and soothing like a mother's arms, harking back to a hen spreading her wings over the chicks.
If we were under the protection of such magic wings what would they look like? Would they glow with colour and glimmer with mystical gems? This collection is my interpretation of the old symbol.
The silk was dyed earlier in the summer before the indigo vat collapse but apart from the blue I can't tell you which plants I used. I went with the flow and didn't keep notes. The colours turned out very autumnal. These necklaces are also the first to have the tiny T signature tags attached to the clasp at the back.
Their photos follow and more details can be seen in the shop. They will become available on Sunday.
