Gothic Inspired Architectural designs is my newest collection coming for Fall 2014. For years I have been inspired by the amazing Architecture of the past. While taking my Interior Decorating and Interior Design the one group of courses I couldn’t get enough of were Art and Architectural History. The fact that one building can take various decades and more to complete with various architects, designers, painters and the many people it takes to achieve these greatly detailed features of the architectural buildings of the past. I could go on and on about this subject, but it would take a life time to talk about it all.

These are the first 3 pieces of my Architectural Collection. I am currently working on other Architectural inspired designs I will be adding soon to this collection. They will likely continue to be a big part of my designs in the future. These were all inspired by the Gothic style Cathedrals and buildings of that era. Some of the most elaborate of all the past architectural buildings.

This first is the Gothic Stained Glass Rose Window Scarf. The Gothic Stained Glass Rose Window Scarf is inspired by the architectural features of the Gothic Cathedrals of the past. This sculptural Gothic Stained Glass scarf has an embellished Stained Glass Rose Window which was a prominent feature on Gothic Cathedrals and buildings of that era. Can be worn with or without the brooch.

The brooch is designed with the half the brooch being the view of the Rose Window from the outside looking in the the elaborate tracery of stone and a hint of the colours of stained glass beneath. The other side of the Stained Glass Brooch shows the view of from the inside of the cathedral with the more vibrant colours dancing about and the detailed metal pieces holding the work together. Tracery and elaborate stone features were an exquisite feature of these beautiful works of art. This design is done on a vintage essence base which adds to the overall effect.

Two metal buttons on the scarf are reminiscent of the Quartrefoil shape often seen on the Gothic Inspired Cathedrals and buildings.

The second scarf is the Gothic Cathedral Scarf and is inspired by the architectural features of the Gothic Cathedrals of the past. This sculptural Gothic Cathedral scarf has an embellished cathedral brooch designed with the pointed arches and crockets often often seen on the great spires used on these amazing cathedrals.

The brooch is in the shape of a cross in retrospect of the usual architectural design of the Gothic cathedrals. Tracery and elaborate stone features were an exquisite feature of these beautiful works of art. This design is done on a vintage essence base which adds to the overall effect.

I wanted to take you back to the beginning of my Architectural blogging journey with my first blog about this new adventure. I will also re blog various others from my original blog above to show the progression of this exciting journey with yarn I am on. As well I will post new blogs on my current designs including the “Wired to the Past” project so follow along as I continue my walk into the past. There will be a special draw for a set of architectural hand warmers down the road as well so be on the look out for information on how to enter. Have a wonderful day!
