Here are just a few of the projects that
I have created over the years.


Spindle-Spun Silk

After taking a dyeing class with Linda Whiting (Pine Star Studios), I dyed a bombyx silk brick.  Using only the three primary colors, we combined them in the proper ratios to create the secondary and tertiary colors.  Then I spun and plied each color on spindles.
