The first camellias are opening on our street, and in the studio we're honoring them with these...

Our silk flowers are carefully created by hand, each one unique.  For a camellia, individual petals of different sizes and fabrics are stitched into place around a center knot.  Roses are made by artfully folding, twisting, and stitching strips of fabric.  The roses look quite realistic when massed in different sizes, with leaves and buds.
