Nuno felted wearable inspired by Casa di Giulietta

The finished Casa di Giulietta poncho modeled by beautiful Taylor.

Work in process on the Casa di Giulietta nuno felted piece.

The graffiti love wall in the narrow archway corridor before entering Juliet's balcony courtyard in Verona, Italy was my inspiration to create this nuno felted wearable poncho really known as a tabard, the open sided garment worn by knights during the middle ages.  

Bronze statue of Juliet right outside the famous balcony.

I loved the graffiti archway and was more taken by it than the actual balcony, well known per those fictional characters Romeo and Juliet, which is the real tourist attraction. 

Taylor is modeling the tabard inside out.  Her jewels really frame the stand up collar.

Thank you Taylor for all your love and support.  You are the BEST of the BEST.
