This design is set on a brass background. Clockwork, jewel beetles settle on bronze and amber flowers, whilst behind them an army of ticking clocks and cogs mark the relentless passing of time. I’ve chosen the 12mm satin silk for this design because of its ability to bring lustre to the metallic tones. It also provides an excellent soft drape, whilst producing an almost double sided effect. The generous dimensions of 60cm x 188cm and light weight, means that it can be worn either as an elegant shawl, or scrunched for an everyday scarf.
