A new collection of jewellery has just arrived at Hawksby's in Haworth featuring more beautiful vintage Kesitas silks. I created the first collection last year in collaboration wth the gallery using old collectors silks featuring stunning colourful flowers. So far I have only made these pieces exclusively for the gallery, and this is my second collection. I love this colourful collection, it is such a contrast to my work with postcards, and it has had such a great response that we thought we should have another group in time for Christmas.
The silks are from a series of 100 featuring different flowers which were originally given away in packets of Kensitas cigarettes in the 1930's. Each come with a paper folder containing the name of the flower and a description.
