Hand Knit Recycled Silk Jellybean Wristlet, as seen at the GBK Luxury Gift Lounge for the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards.
These beautiful little evening wristlets or pouches visited Hollywood where they were gifted to members of the press at the GBK Gift Lounge for the Primetime Emmy Awards in conjunction with The Artisan Group. Each is hand knit from recycled sari silk yarn in a range of colors, from a beautiful jade green, to a lovely snow white. The lining is crafted from sari silk remnants or peace silk, depending on my availability. The strap a lovely hand dyed silk ribbon.
Each of these beauties is unique and a little bit different. No two balls of yarn used to craft them are exactly alike. COLOR AVAILABILITY MAY VARY. ADDITIONAL COLORS ARE SOMETIMES IN STOCK, DEPENDING ON WHAT YARNS I'VE BEEN ABLE TO GET. FOR A COMPLETE LIST OF CURRENT COLORS, PLEASE CONTACT LUCY AT ROSY TOES DESIGNS!
A perfectly lovely pouch that would do well as a bridesmaid's gift, small bride's pouch, wristlet at the prom, or an evening out. They are elegant in their simplicity.
The yarn itself inspired the pouch. I wanted to create something with just the right drape and a slight teardrop shape. I couldn't be happier with how these jellybean pouches turned out! You'll also find that your pouch will gain in softness and beauty the more it is used!
Closure is with a silk ribbon drawstring.
Body - The pouch is knit from 100% recycled sari silk yarn from Darn Good Yarn that has been handspun from sari remnants (all new). The yarn is fair trade and is handspun in remote areas of India and Nepal by a women's co-op. The new silk remnants are gathered, sorted, teased by hand and then spun to create the yarn. The yarn used is bought only from co-ops who provide fair trade and wages.
Lining - The lining is crafted from a large remnant (new) of the sari fabric. You may notice a few small imperfections in the fabric. EXACT LINING COLOR AND STYLE WILL VARY ACCORDING TO AVAILABILITY. ROSY TOES DESIGNS WILL CONTACT YOU WITH LINING CHOICES.
Strap - Hand dyed silk ribbon. EXACT STRAP WILL VARY DEPENDING ON AVAILABILITY. ROSY TOES DESIGNS WILL CONTACT YOU WITH COLOR CHOICES.
Size: Approximately 8 1/2" tall, 16" circumference at the top. Some are a little smaller, some a little larger. Need a specific size? Contact me. There is slight ballooning at the middle of the pouch.
Care: Dry clean, dryel, or hand wash (carefully support it to make sure you don't get any stretch). Lay flat to dry. If you hand wash or machine wash, you'll find that the texture of your pouch will change, but remains quite beautiful. Want to know more?
