Treasury Thanks... Brydferth

I'm very thrilled to have one of my Silk Tapestry Hip Pouches featured in an Etsy Treasury and even more so because the theme is one close to my heart, the Mediterranean.

Having ancestral origins from this part of the world... and having lived in the South of France in my teens, and later on in the Canaries (Lanzarote)... I feel that my work has been deeply influenced by the Mediterranean. The expansiveness of azure blue of skies & waters... the incredible bright hot sun and stunning moon risings... the rich contrasting colors... the intricate patterns and motifs... the aromas and artistic layouts of culinary dishes... its distinct architectural lifestyle... synthesizing outdoor elements into the home... the beauty of the landscape and its colorful agricultural crops... well... the list could go on forever... lol

Hailey Rose, Etsy shop owner: Brydferth, is hungering to visit the Mediterranean... she dreams of it and in celebration of her future voyage... created this lovely Treasury:


There you will see one of Brizel Handcrafts' beautiful Silk Tapestry bags: Lagoon Tweed ... "This delicious green toned ooak Brizel Silk Tapestry Hip Pouch, made of hand spun teal green & light multicolored chocolate silk sari yarns, is just perfect for your special occasion needs !"

"Lagoon Tweed has been embellished with a delicious complimentary vintage button, which secures the front closure flap... Synthesized on a hand woven Guatemalan ikat cotton sash of deep sea green with whispering white 'clouds', my unique (one of a kind) silk tapestry hip pouch has my special Brizel logo: a lilac faux swede label with the Brigit cross, rising sun and full moon, to assure you that this pouch is handmade by me."

I love how the design worked out on this pouch... I had just acquired some gorgeous multicolored brown silk sari yarn... it was so soft and so fine that when I paired it up with the teal green silk sari yarn... and then with the vintage button and hand woven sash... it just sang !

And now a little about Hailey Rose and her wonderful Etsy shop: Brydferth. Her profile reads: "I am a farm girl, a fashionista, a soon to be bride, a lover of life and nature. I find my inspiration on a daily basis from the farm, people, the mountains, the seasons. Life is beautiful and that is why I chose to name my shop Brydferth. Brydferth is the Welsh word for Beautiful. I am half Welsh and so I decided to bring a bit of the old world roots into my life by choosing a Welsh word."

Brydferth is indeed well named as the shop is filled with gorgeous accessories and jewelry that focus on highlighting the rose into beautiful wearable floral arrangements. There you will find many wondrous creations including headbands, necklaces, brooches, earrings, bracelets, rings, and bobby pins & clips.

Here are some of my favorites...

Pictured above... Bright rosette headband, featuring fuchsia pink cotton rosettes, violet cotton rosette, baby pink cotton rosette and another pink cotton blend rosette.

Pictured below... Rosette Necklace Chocolate Linen, Romantic Silk and pretty Tan Trio.

Hailey has "a constant burning desire to make things. I have a little studio in my home where I try to make most of my creations happen but the kitchen table tends to be a popular place as well for these creative moments."

Well... that is indeed a Mediterranean concept right there... creative moments happening in the kitchen. lol. Below... Winter Ice Blue and White Rosette Bib Necklace, Silk and Cotton.

Wishing this Treasury every success and the best of luck on future voyages to the Mediterranean !
