This design began as a vision of roses on a trellis which had shine and dots of sparkle of morning dew. The vision turned into silk, which added drape and swish, along with and crystals which lent it sparkle. In the end you will have a lovely art deco stole (or triangle) which will look as if it walked off of a 1920’s movie set.
