Why you ask...? Well I will share my news with you.
Article spread inset of choker details
I was published to my delight in a wonderful magazine called Belle Armoire. This magazine features "The Artistry of Clothing and Accessories". This is such a wonderful honor to have my sewing artwork included in this fabulous publication!
Letter inside secret pocket on choker
I submitted two pieces for an art call: "Becoming Jane". A light blue velvet choker and matching handbag highlighting our heroine herself. The choker features a hidden pocket where Miss Elizabeth of Pride and Prejudice keeps the words of love professed to her by Mr. Darcy. The handbag features a small diary attached to the front with, smokey light blue rhinestones, antique shell buttons, a lady figurehead and hand sewn medallion lace attached to the bottom of the purse. This feature article is by Amanda Crabtree and to my surprise she even wrote a lovely description of my work in her article, thanks Amanda!
