My latest fascination has been with ribbon folding – inspired by kanzashi methods. This weekend is my first studio tour for ARTrails in two years — so I am busy finishing up details on these flower bases I’ve created with different ribbons.

My gallery piece this year is a bridal headpiece called “Blossom”. With my background in ballet costuming, bead weaving and mixed media – I have elements of lace, ribbon, crystals, beads and tulle to create this unique headpiece. It’s base color is white with accents of gold and pink.
