Redesigned Indian Silk 1950's Dress
This dress was downright ugly before I redesigned it. Gorgeous aqua/gray/silver silk, I removed the original sleeves, shortened it to a swishy party length and added a beautiful 1960's beaded belt. A real wow waiting to swing on the dance floor!
Beaded Handbag SOLD
This gorgeous piece was made from 100 year old Odd Fellows regalia collars embroidered with dimensional silver coil wire. I over beaded it. Leather is from an old bomber jacket and closed with a Deco era buckle. Strap is round 4 strand braiding in 2 colors. Pretty great!
Picasso Handbag, SOLD
I collect needlepoint pieces at thrift stores and garage sales to use in various ways. This one of the famous Picasso painting "Girl Before a Mirror," I made into the bag combined with black/white pinstriped velveteen and backed with an upholstery fabric shot with stripes of silk velvet.
