"Periwinkle Pops" started life as three inch periwinkle plant flowering on 4th of July, at the pool party celebrations.
I was leaving the pool and literally did a double take as I backtracked to admire a tiny flower that was bursting with colour.
I stared at it in fascination, in awe, that something so little could exude such vibrance.
I wanted to capture that magic and wonder as a painting.
The next step was how to translate that little flower to a 78" cashmere scarf for my client Miss Debra who immediately wanted the little beauty as her own. I tried and tried and tried and could not find a way to expand one little flower that that was three inches tall into 78 ".
My weavers told me it was impossible. I reluctantly called Miss Debra and offered an apology. She was adamant, " I want my "Periwinkle Pops scarf!" At this point I was so emotional. She believed that I could find a way to create this beautiful scarf. She believed it more than I did. She told me that she would pray for me to find a way to make this scarf. That was two years ago. Miss Debra was the first woman on this Earth to own the cashmere scarf and matching statement bag in " Periwinkle Pops." She wears it proudly and even sent photos of her wearing them in the governor's office.
I am pleased to announce, finally, two years later, the launch of " Periwinkle Pops" .
Enjoy this beauty all year ' round. A pop of colour in Winter, and a splash of colour in Spring and Summer.
We look forward to seeing your photos of you wearing your " Periwinkle Pops".
