Watermelon Squares Red White Black Hand-Dyed and Hand Painted Silk Triangle Necklace

75.00

My small triangle scarves and necklaces are my absolute favorite accessories in spring and summer. Made of high twisted silk seersucker, they add an accent to any look while keeping your neck cool. 

Starting with a white square of high twisted silk seersucker, I bound the fabric using the itajime method of shibori resist then dyed multiple times with different colors, re-binding the fabric in between colors, until I ended up with the result you see here. The serged edges add dimensional structure, as well as another opportunity to punch up the color. The tiny tendrils undulate and create yet another visual accent. The added structure of the serged edging along with the comfort of the crinkled silk gauze allows this piece to sit comfortably around your neck. 

One of my favorite things about using shibori techniques are the unexpected patterns that occur from resists. The patterns create an interesting dimension, no matter how you wear them! It can be loosely draped or tied around your neck. 

I usually work with silk or silk-like fabrics because I enjoy how in the summer the fabrics breathe easy against the skin, while in the winter the bright colors of the dye bring light to an otherwise dull day.
