The second piece made from "gems" fashioned out of this piece of Matkalla Malle by Teresa Moorhouse for Marimekko (this blue version is no longer in print).
It is inspired by "the blurred images viewed from a moving car" but all I see after I've cut the round "gems" are swimming pools. Haha.
If you love wearing The Empress Dowager's New Jewels with the ruched side showing, this is a piece for you!
The colours are so serene that it's not going to give people around you dizzy headaches. Unlike some of the other crazy-coloured pieces. Tee hee hee.
~ All pieces are 100% handstitched with love.
~ Each piece is a one-off -> no two pieces of The Empress Dowager's New Jewels are the same
~ The smallest "gem" measures 1.5cm in diameter, the next one up is 2.5cm, followed by 4.5cm and 6cm for the largest
~ From the first "gem" on the left to the last one on the right: 41cm
~ Length of ribbon-tie: 39cm on each side (to allow for the wearing of your "jewels" at various lengths
~ AU$65.00 (for currency converter, click here) - cheap for a one-of-a-kind handmade piece compared to those mass-produced chainstore trinkets!
