Embroidery and Bejewellment

Marielle ThomsonComment

Here, our Indian summer continues amidst natures indisputable signs of decay;  of falling back, of exposure to the exquisitely beautiful state of skeleton or pod, wild roses now dry, crumpled and the most vibrant shade of raspberry with hints of burnt orange; these colours are evocative of India.  Embroidery and bejewellment are two themes of my capsule collection and, here, I permit you a glimpse into the world of MarielleK with some more of my silk velvet chokers and my intricate embroidery which will adorn pieces in the new collection.

Velvet days

Marielle ThomsonComment

As summer draws to a close, and there is a perceptible crispness in the air, we are busy designing a capsule collection of beautiful things for autumn and winter.  Today we have been trying out the embellished velvet choker; we hope you love it and look forward to sharing the full range of colours in early September.

Finding the Vikings

Marielle ThomsonComment

I can't believe how fast our summer is whizzing past, even more so because we are enjoying some rather nice weather.

The concept of time is a fascinating one and ever has it been so.  Last week, along with some members of my family, I went to a smaller island off the mainland here for a day of discovery at an archaeological dig.  At Skaill on Rousay, a ruinous Viking farmstead, we were treated to a talk from the archaeologists followed by a tour of the sites and even a little bit of troweling.  What I  particularly enjoyed afterwards was the washing of the finds, crouched down with a basin of water and being able to examine the bones, shells and bits of pottery; spanning whole lifetimes and more.

That was a day well spent; spatial and temporal.   Already another collection has been imagined; taking it's own time to form in my mind.  Meanwhile I hope you enjoy some of these images from our time travel adventure and look out for more beautiful pieces coming soon.
