Team My Crowning Jewel
We Did It! - Thanks To You!
Thank you so much for voting for us! Because of you we won a spot to present our Jewels at Mass Innovation Nights!
We had a wonderful time explaining why women should retire their satin bonnets and frumpy head scarves and upgrade to a Jewel!
Thanks to the Mass Innovation Nights team we have a video of our pitch!
Pictured below is our President, Veronica N. Chapman, and Chief Designer, Luisa Chapman, presenting My Crowning Jewel to the Mass Innovation Nights audience.
We have two Jewels made from Batik fabrics, the Rose Royce Jewel, and the Batik Libra. I was not familiar with these beautiful fabrics until our Chief Designer, Luisa W. Chapman, brought them to my attention; I am so happy that we were able to make Jewels from these fabric creations!
According to The Batik Guild in the United Kingdom, "Batik is both an art and a craft, which is becoming more popular and well known in the West as a wonderfully creative medium. The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practised for centuries. In Java, Indonesia, batik is part of an ancient tradition, and some of the finest batik cloth in the world is still made there. The word batik originates from the Javanese tikand means to dot.
To make a batik, selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them, and the cloth is then dyed. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original colour. This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create more elaborate and colourful designs. After the final dyeing the wax is removed and the cloth is ready for wearing or showing."
