Welcome to SerendipitySilks!
I began painting about 20 years ago. When my kids were little I used to paint murals, slates, wine glasses, mailboxes, etc. You name it, If you could paint on it I would! I have taken over the living room with my tables, steamers and clothes hangers. Painting on silk is like my therapy. There's something about watching the dye come alive as you put the paint brush to the silk. It flows like the ocean, taking on a life of it's own. You know how you can sit watching the waves come and go at the beach, this has the same effect on your soul. It's a powerful tool for mindfulness.
I paint each piece by myself. Once dried, they are steamed to set the dye and bring out the bold colors. Each piece is gift wrapped in a hand made envelope using a gorgeous textured white card stock. An acetate viewing window is located on the front so the silk can peek through for just a tease for what's to come. The envelope is then sealed with a Serendipity Silks sticker to secure the item inside. The finishing touch is a hand dyed silk ribbon bow.
Please note colors can appear different from computer to computer. You can see color description for each item for more accurate color representation.
Natural silk is perfect for autumn & winter chills as well as summer heat.
