Hannelore Koch's unique and stylish designs for jewellery, bags, shawls and jackets require no special skills - all the methods are clearly explained and involve simply combining painted silk, yarns and threads, and machine stitching them on to a background of water-soluble stabiliser. The results, however, are stunning. Use them to complement a casual look or evening wear, or create your own style with your own choice of colour and texture. Full, step-by-step instructions are provided for all the projects, and patterns and templates where required.
