Woo! The 80th piece of The Empress Dowager's New Jewels! My, we've come a long way, haven't we? And I still love making them. I hope you'll enjoy wearing them as much as I have had putting them together.
Alright, about this piece...
It's made from the remnants of some of the green Marimekko fabrics that I have collected over time, the names of which I can't remember (it's hard with long Finnish names!).
I like how the colours graduate from light to dark on these off-cuts, like how tall grass in a field looks when a gust of wind blows over. Thus, the name - A Galaxy Of Windswept Emerald Fields.
Some gorgeous green grass around the neck, anyone?
