Latest blog: Embroidery dances into the 1920s.

Inspired by the literature of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sue creates a bijoux bag with all the glitz and sparkle of the 1920s fashions described in ‘The Great Gatsby’.

Creative embroidery techniques and flapper-style embellishments enhance this evening purse, a touch of ‘Gatsby’ romance for a summer party.

Take a peek at the embroidery, see image (left): detail of pale silk organza rose embellishment with rouleaux decorations.
