vintage + handmade
Vintage + Handmade that's what I'm all about and this is a perfect example of mixing vintage pieces with handmade creations. In this look the cropped dolman sleeve top is sewn and hand-dyed in my studio, the necklace is made with stones I have collected that I wrapped with heavy gauge wire and hung from a great, beautiful vintage chain, the skirt is a wonderful red vintage slip with ruffle detail. I made the dreamcatchers hanging about using vintage doilies and recycled metal circles from old crab nets used many moons ago somewhere here in bayou country. The blankets and afghans are either handmade or vintage or both.
A perfect representation of bayou bohemian.
Jewels + Metals, Leather + Stone, Cloth + Dye, Remnants + Relics.
