The custom designed stole commissioned a few weeks' back is finished and delivered to the recipient.It felt good to see how pleased she was with the results. The stole is made from silk noile with habatai silk and lamé appliques. Holographic, metallic and iridescent threads were used to give a few sparkly highlights to the glass jar, water, and silver bowl. The backing is velveteen which features an embroidered cross stitched in metallic thread. Needless to say, using these specialty threads and fabrics was a challenge.
