work for a plain jean jacket, size medium. I decided to use a William
Morris theme for the choice of fabrics: amongst the Morris patterns
used, are Compton and Fruit. I used the border of a sari on the collar
and cuffs and some hand-beaded lace as well.
Then I added some beading with glass beads, Austrian crystals, Chinese
porcelain beads and some Jade horoscope beads. From then I moved on to
adding some buttons on the collar, shoulder and back, with a tassel on
the shoulder. I have chosen some jewelry accents as well, most
particularly a wonderful Art Nouveau nymph and a delicate silver flower
with a black freshwater pearl heart that was once part of a pair of
earrings. Finally, I thought the jacket needed a touch of summer, so
here come the rhinestone cherries!
