Description:

Moonstones and labradorite on gold filigree on a chrysoprase, turquoise, lapis lazuli ground. Geodes and Gemstones Contest entry. © Su Schaefer 2014 Moonstones and labradorite on gold filigree with a chrysoprase, turquoise and lapis lazuli background. Entry in the Geodes and Gemstones Contest.

CLICK on the second thumbnail under the design image for a crisp, clear, swatch view. The third thumbnail shows how this printed on silky faille, the fourth compares silky faille (left) with cotton-silk (larger scale, right); and the fifth shows it printed on faux suede (with thanks to Carrie, designer hrhusagi on Spoonflower).

Moonstones and labradorite are two of the less well known semi-precious gemstones and both have wonderful color transformations - sitting on the cusp of white-pink-blue and blue-green-gray colors (although labradorite also comes in a pink version and its chemical composition is so complex it has many other colors to offer in different circumstances). Both are really too soft to wear in everyday jewelery so I like to think that fabric would be the perfect venue for them. This is of course, a complete fantasy!

See my other costuming / SCA designs.

Oil on canvas, basic repeat.

su_g says: Thanks so much for your lovely comment Victoria, much appreciated. This is one design where the illusion of metallics really does work - and I've always thought it would be totally functional in costuming as you would save so much weight.

su_g says: Wow! That looks amazing Carrie - thank you so much for sharing the faux suede print! I had a really close look and the printed detail - especially in the filigree - is amazing, that is such an excellent fabric for printing.

hrhusagi says: I bought swatches of this design on several fabrics. I love all of them, but the faux suede is particularly stunning. Wanted to let you see how it looked. The color is rich and the texture is incredible!

su_g

su_g says: Comparing the print on two different fabrics: silky faille on the left (smaller scale) and cotton-silk on the right (at a larger scale), both nice. The cotton-silk gives a softer print and beautiful color depth I think; the silky faille gives brighter color and a slightly crisper print.

su_g says: Thanks so much Shirley! Your comment made me smile as I pictured your ballgown (and maybe super-duper platform heels...). This printed so beautifully on both the silky faille and the cotton-silk that I would love to see it in such a glamorous use! It would certainly be totally unique.

su_g

su_g says: Thanks very much Jan, Paula, Amy, Maaike and Ceri for your positive comments and feedback on this design and the collection. It's great to know that the variations in the motif coloring work to give some dimension to it, and I'm glad that it hits the spot with other labradorite admirers - it really is one of my favorite semi-precious gems. I'm getting this proofed on cotton-silk (so wonderful to have the new proofing options!) so fingers crossed (should be just another ten days or so now...).

su_g

su_g says: Thanks Sue Ellen - I think! How it turned out was another of those happy accidents - or rather a series of them... I started out to design a breastplate... but ended up with a motif that reminds me of the way some cultures wear their valuables... and do imagine this used for theater and costuming (Medieval etc.).

rhondad...

rhondadesigns says: Your gorgeous design looks as though it would make a soft, swooshy, tinkling sound as it moved. It makes me think of ornately beaded belly dance costumes. Swirling veils, glittery vests, flaring skirts, beaded belts and hip scarves would all showcase the print in a spectacular fashion, Su!

su_g

su_g says: Thanks very much Vannina and Helene for your wonderful comments and feedback! I started this design with an idea for a breastplate but got sidetracked along the way as it took on its own life... and I so love your comment Helene that it reminds you of medieval painting and clothing - that's exactly where I felt it was going too, and if I was doing a mockup that's the sort of clothing I would put it in! Thanks again, much appreciated!
