The Java Starlight shawl in silk is just gorgeous! It is a feast for the eyes with the deep blues and intricate design. Made in a soft, luxurious silk, it truly dazzles. It is at least as beautiful as the picture shows it and everything I had hoped it would be. Many thanks for this amazing piece of art. I will wear it often!
