This one-of-a-kind scarf or wrap was inspired by the vibrancy of the peacock feather; this is evident in the round, multi-dimensional peacock “eyes” and the subtle use of blues, greens, black, and iridescent in the pieces. The scarf is accented at the edges by a more ethereal combination of blues, whites, and oranges, with fine lines of mulberry silk.
The fibers used include silk chiffon, mulberry silk, dip-dyed Teeswater lamb locks, and top merino. This scarf also includes metallic blue threads of angelina; these threads are very fine and subtle and lend a subtle accent to the piece.

This wrap was originally created as a submission piece to benefit breast cancer research. The title refers to the cellular battle that takes place within the body of those fighting breast cancer: hot and fiery cancer cells attempt to envelope cool and calm healthy cells. This piece seeks to represent this struggle, yet reflect the beauty that exists in the spirit of the women (and men) that struggle with breast cancer. Make no mistake about it, this is a lovely piece of wearable art.

This wrap was inspired by the waterlily ponds I gazed at as a child in south Florida. It is fully reversible. One side reflects the cojoined colors within the water, including leaf green, flower petal brights, and gold fish oranges; the other side reflects the top of the water, with waterlilies, their pads, and swirling fish currents.
