I'm Baaaack!

O.k., well almost. Desert Dyeworks kind of disappeared from the radar a little over a year ago(maybe longer). With focusing on the day-job and not having any left over creative energy I let things fall by the wayside.

Well, with the creative soul-sucking day job outta the way I have refocused my energy on Desert Dyeworks. I have switched gears slightly and will not be doing silk dress-up and playsilks. However, I can't get away from fabric and adding color to it. I haved delved into printing/screenprinting.

My current creations are shirts. All my shirt blanks are upcycled and I am planning on expanding that to other clothing articles and accesories. Also, to satisfy my dye demon I am designing some name/celebration banners ala prayer flag style.

I am currently building up my stock of goodies but am forseeing product pics and listing going up in the coming week. Yay! I am so happy to be back :)

Ring of Fire

For women around the world, childbirth is not a necessary evil, but a rite of passage, for both mother and baby. The term "Ring of Fire" is often used to describe the intense feeling of the baby crowning. The lotus flower symbolizes the woman's body opening up like a blooming flower to release the baby.
