WEARING ART IN FASHION CAPITAL

Wearing my signature Wool Felted Heart-shaped Bib Necklace is like Wearing Art with Love!

Last Fall, my unique wool look was ranked at TOP 11 Worldwide 
in the Woolmark Company's WE LOVE WOOL "Fashion By Feelings" campaign.


But being able to wear my very own handcrafted LOVE BIB in 
THREE of the Top 6 Fashion Capitals is such an amazing experience.

 Last Spring 2011 in Hong Kong. 
Last Summer 2011 in New York.
And now...this Spring 2012 in Paris!

Can't wait to get more fresh ideas for my next felting projects!

Claude Monet's House & Gardens in Giverny...I'm coming!!!

Claude Monet's House & Gardens - Located 80 km West from Paris, France in the village of Giverny, 4 km from the town of Vernon. There are two parts in Monet's garden: a flower garden called Clos Normand in front of the house and a Japanese inspired water garden on the other side of the road. The two parts of Monet's garden contrast and complement one another. This places were a source of inspiration for Claude Monet himself, but will always an artist's paradise.

Do you know? 
"Monet almost never left Europe, thus never traveled to Japan. But in his Giverny home, he surrounded himself with Japanese woodblock prints. He first collected Japanese prints in the 1860s, and this passion would last for over three decades. At the end of his life, he owned 231 Japanese engravings."
