My Red Dragonfly Gala Dresspublished in, Belle Amoire, Summer 2012, Page 46. I had the pleasure of having my niece Peyton Carroll model the dress and it was a feature at the Tri City Fashion Show, 2013, Modeled by Sara. It has graced many events and won the Donated award 2013 from American Sewing Guild! Hand embellished and embroidered. It not only won 1st place at the San Diego fair, but also won the prestigious Donated Award, gifting me a membership for a year to the American Sewing Guild, which ehanced and changed my life. Before this award, I did not think I could sew, due to poor sewing skills confidence. Also included in the photo is my green Envy Dress and Asian Flower sun Dress.

I embroidered these velvet dresses to wear to Musical, Wine and Gala events. When I was a young teen growing up in Florida, my family could not afford to buy me alot of fashionable clothes. Even at a young age I was drawn to color, luxurious fabric, ribbons, silk flowers and unique clothing. While enjoying my grandmothers company, in Tampa, Florida, whose artistic home she opened up and rented out rooms to other elderly ladies, I often received the pleasure of various artistic instruction. One of my and the ladies favorites was teaching me embroidering, tatting, crewel, knitting and fabric application. Of course, I embellished my jeans, my jackets, shirts, aprons, hats and anything I could get my fingers on…. I must say thank you to my grandmother: Katharine Stowell and my mother: Katharine Weekly for allowing me to explore and flourish.
These dresses are a Thank you to both of them… with love and honor……Trish

Exciting news: On sale now is Belle Amoire Magazine which features my Sterling Silver Art Work. My necklace was hand forged from sheet silver and silver wire creating the hand made chain links and the V shaped center piece. Malachite stone was set in the center. I have always been attracted the journey of the goddess and women. Thus I read Marija Gimbutas’, “The Language of the Goddess”, which inspired this piece. Note the language of this special piece.
The Angel Pin has a opal stone, the Cooper Heart Pin is soldered to my style of fold forming and the malachite star earrings compliment the Visions of Strength necklace. The silver earrings are crowned with a white cultured pearl.
My step daughter, Jaime Vernazza Peterson is modeling Visions of Strength Necklace and Earrings. She is so beautiful and makes my necklace more special!
