The Summer Dress will also be at the big show with me, and hopefully future small shows, too. This one was made for a small street level apartment with tin ceilings on Portland's west side. I was inspired by a scrap of mirror I thought looked like a dress swaying in the ocean breeze...add a little beach glass bodice, some etched flowers and a handful of ruffles and you have a Summer Dress! The spaghetti straps are made out of guitar strings and the hanger is handmade, too.

I hung mine next to the front door so I could check if my earmuffs were straight before heading out into the snow...no worries about that in Tucson!
