This shawl was completed as part of a project to incorporate metals in with my textile background. The assignment was to make a rather crazy fashion accessory (and boy does this ever fit). Simple lace patterns throughout the top and a variety of natural and synthetic fibers add texture to the metal base. Fine gauge copper wire was used in most of the shawl to change the flow of the fabric in to a piece that is more structured with very little drape (an effect I am not overly fond of as I like drape in my shawls).

To read all about this shawl, please visit it's gallery page (where there are more pictures):
