Early Morning Rose is a divine soft fiber arts container featuring multicolored silk sari yarn rich in tones of deep reds, electric turquoise blue and greens. It has a lid of its own which is embellished with a Czech glass art button... a frosted iridescent flower.
Rose woke up early one morning, stretched her newly grown thorns, and yawned at the rising sun. The moon was still glistening silvery blue on her red petals and she felt the twilight magic upon her body. Oh my goodness... she had turned purple !

What is Silk Tapestry ?
Brizel Silk Tapestry is a technique that was developed by me in order to create woven rug-like thicknesses without the use of a loom. I wanted to work in spiral formation since most of my motifs are round in nature... i wanted the flow, form & color to follow that pattern... so I adapted upon crochet... when using a crochet hook, each thick silk yarn loop is pulled tightly before I can make the next one... so that the end result is very thick and dense.
The creation of a Brizel Silk Tapestry piece is both a conscientious & effort-ful act... all that pulling & tugging is hard work on the hands, wrists and arm muscles... but the result is well worth it and I love seeing the beauty shine through !
The silk yarns that I use to create Silk Tapestry products are made from reclaimed silk threads and loom warps, left overs from silk sari garment factories... these are reclaimed and hand spun into gorgeous thick sport weight yarns.
For vegan Silk Tapestry Boxes I use rayon; cotton with or without hemp; and banana silk yarn, a silk like yarn made from banana fibers. Please note the vegan boxes are typically softer in terms of form & shape.
