This beautiful fiber art lariat is inspired by the lotus flower and features a large handmade flower brooch/clip and a vine-inspired crochet scarflette. The flower has double nested petals made of a pale celery green silk dupioni fabric that has been embroidered by me using a free motion embroidery technique with cream and apple green threads. I create my flowers by using my sewing machine as a drawing tool, and I "draw" the flower and all the details with thread onto the fabric. The center of the flower has been hand beaded with a mix of silvery seed beads.
The flower clip has both an alligator clip and a brooch attachment, making it very versatile- use as a scarf clip (as shown in the pictures), wear it in your hair as a barrette clip, or wear it as a brooch. Although the flower looks delicate, much strength and sturdiness has been engineered into this design. Each scarf is a unique handmade creation!
The flower comes with a crochet lariat made of Tweedy 70% silk/30% cotton yarn- very soft and comfortable next to the skin. Inspired by twirling vines and tendrils, this crochet lariat scarf comes in a cream color. If you would like the scarf in a different color, please let me know your preference in the 'note to seller' when purchasing.
