Welcome to a new Friday Fashion episode.
What is a collier? A collier usually refers to a piece of bulky and imposing jewelry necklace. Put them on and they will turn heads for sure!!!! Each piece will make a statement regardless if it is worn with a casual or semi-formal outfit. My colliers are interesting alternatives to a scarf and have two functions: keep the neck warm and embellish the clothes. Often each piece has glass embellishments and colorful beads.
I love to create with yarn, fabrics, beads, glass and various findings. The design comes as I go along, ideas develop as I see the work growing and colors….ah, it is never a challenge for me. Colors don’t have to match, I know they will look good together no matter what I do. To look at a bowl of fruit is sufficient to find inspiration.
I have one kind of woman in mind when I am making these colliers: a woman who likes to be different, likes to stand out in the crowd, likes to receive compliments and likes to feel well dressed for any occasion.
Each pieces is a decorative art, wearable in the daytime with a flowing skirt, boots and hat as if she means it…. or for an evening out in town over a simple black dress to add some sparkle in the face.

I am so happy many of my pieces are scattered in the world making their appearances at parties, special occasions or in someone’s everyday life. I am so honored, thank you all. Ciao,
