Inspired by the vase paintings of the ancient world; Celtic design; the jewelry, mosaics, and enamels of the Byzantine world; and the works of artist Gustav Klimt, Jackie Cardy has created samplers, purses, and brooches from dyed silk velvet, fibers, and nostalgia.

I love your use of complimentary colors and also the shapes and stitching. It all comes together to make a very pretty and interesting piece.
