Two Pictures of my Seashell Scarf

I love anything pertaining to the ocean especially shells. This scarf is one of the long ones about 9" x 53". The person who bought it had it framed and it is absolutely beautiful. I was thrilled.

Two long Scarves

These two scarves were done with vinegar, dyes and then microwaved. A very simple procedure and I would be very happy to share "how to"with everyone.

Sunflower Silk Scarf, 22" x 22"

This silk scarf is a 22" square and the person who bought it had it framed with a double mat and wooden frame. It looked just great and she was very happy.

Two scarves I did at the very beginning

Sorry the fish are so blurry but you get the idea. These scarves are 22" x 22" and both are sold. The scarves I am doing for my next show in November are long and narrow about 10' x 53". I am steaming one right now. After it steams for one hour I will then have to wash the heck out of it and then iron it. It is a thrill to see them finished.

My very first scarf made in Colorado

I decided to create a blog for my silk scarves. It seems to me I have to much on my Studiojeanne216 blog so I am going to try to make both blogs more streamlined.
On one of my many trips to Colorado to visit my son and his wife, my daughter in law taught me how to paint on silk. I was in heaven and produced two scarves on that trip. She and I have been painting silk scarves ever since.
It took me awhile to decide on what to call my new little business. I finally after many names and different ways to sign I decided to use my Mother's name with mine. So Izolajeanne Painted Silks was born.
