Hand Painted Scarves and More by Nectar Silks
Looking for a unique Valentine’s gift for a special lady? Here’s a great piece of advice from Rebecca Snure of Nectar Silks: “All women love having silk scarves to accessorize the various pieces in their wardrobe.” And who wouldn’t want a one-of-kind, custom to wear piece? Rebecca can hand paint unique designs on these versatile, 100% silk garments. Her images, shapes, and patterns are inspired by her love of nature and traveling, or can be based on your own idea, sketch, or photo that you share with her. Here is just one example of a Valentine’s Day scarf she’s created for a customer. Contact her and discuss your special order. What she’ll design is sure to be a hit with your valentine. “She won’t see another one like it when you have something custom made just for her.”
Rebecca learned French serti, a silk painting technique that makes possible sharply defined images, while staying in a gorgeous chateau in the mountainous Morvan region of Burgundy, France. (The story behind the artist behind your Valentine’s custom project is starting off pretty romantically). Silk painting is her passion and she expresses it through wearable art, not only scarves but also wraps, blouses, dresses, and (her latest item) silk ascots. A dress and wrap ensemble and jacket are modeled below. You can find more photos of Rebecca’s hand painted silk accessories on the wearable art gallery page, and these images are also great illustrations of the many different ways one can tie and wear beautiful Nectar Silks scarves.
Does your valentine prefer something new, youthful, and a little cutting edge? Introducing, Fezzers: “Scarves not to be taken seriously.” Rebecca explains:
They’re as much fun as wearing a feather boa but they’re 100% silk. The name comes from my French friend Pierre’s attempt to say the word “feathers.” They’re for the young as well as the young at heart. Wear them casually or with a tailored suit for an edgier look. I’ll create one in your team colors to wave like a pom-pom to cheer your team on.
Commission your own Fezzer today for casual or edgy wear (or for the serious business of supporting your team).
Peruse the Nectar Silks CustomMade portfolio for more examples of Rebecca’s work and inspiration for your own custom to wear garments or accessories. Her Limited Edition scarves are original designs available for purchase. All her other pieces are made-to-order, so if one has caught your eye contact Rebecca and ask for something in a similar vein. You can also, of course, discuss an entirely new vision in silk for someone you love.
