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.

These pieces are so cool.  I see Klimt's influence and mosaics.  Your work is inspiring; thanks for sharing.
