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 scarf was made from recycled silk saris. I purchase used 100% silk saris from India; some are stained with ink, some have runs and snags. I work around these areas and upcycle the used saris into new scarves and garments so the beautiful silk can live another new life. For you, perhaps? Originally I made three of these, this one is the only one left.

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.
