Peacocks could be found on hats, in paintings, carved in wood, embroidered on linens, and even... in the yard... as pets! We are delighted to present our silk velvet Peacock Shawls for your enjoyment ... at nearly 50% off the retail price! Handmade and hand beaded, these richly hued and elegantly fringed shawls will catch eyes wherever they are seen!
I'd already written a booklet about making textiles wraps and shawls (you can find out about that lower down in this lens) and I had actually experimented with designing a peacock shawl (see further down this page). I decided the wrap or shawl that I'd make this time was going to be a bit simpler in construction to the thick wrap I made before. I decided to mainly focus on decoration rather than construction.
