Happy Endings start with a Happy Beginning! Custom Peacock Ruana

Imagine my delight when I received this message from my client after received her package!

"Oh Joy.....it is absolutely exquisite, as I knew it would be!!  It fits perfectly, the colors are vibrant and amazing, and I can't wait to show it off!!  You truly have a wonderful gift and I am simply in awe of your talent!!

I'll give you a report when I return from the cruise. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

All the very best,

The process begins with an inquiry, people come to me in many ways... whether it's a message from a Facebook Fan or Etsy custom-request or an email from the contact form on my website....business card or friend referral. First the client reaches out and makes a request. Next we establish a timeline, motif and palette, design and payment details, then the creative process takes over and the magic happens in the studio!

The design is first sketched out on paper, then on silk.

You can really see how sheer chiffon silk is in this photo.
Trusting the process - fully saturated colors.
