Do What You Love. Love What You Do.
Hello, my name is My-Cherie, the Artist and Designer of Viva La Silk. First and foremost, I AM so grateful to be MAMA to two wonderful children who motivate me to stay connected to my silly, adventurous & creative side and challenge me to be the best version of myself, every single day.
My motto in life is, “Do what you love. Love what you do.” I believe we should all chase after the things that we are passionate about.
Hand-Dyed Air-Silk Scarves
I started dyeing silk scarves ten years ago under the business name Shimmer & Bliss. Dyeing and free-style painting on silk became my favorite medium and sparked so much JOY in my life; however, I had to take a hiatus due to a busy mom life and life-changing circumstances.
I didn’t think the silks would circle back around this lifetime, but God had a plan for me. My heart was yearning to share my Art with the world, and my friends kept reminding me that I needed to step out on faith and just do it! So I AM doin’ it!
Color + Beauty + History
Viva La Silk is inspired by Color, Beauty, History, Culture and Travel. The bold colors are inspired by the vibrancy of my Cuban-Jamaican heritage.
My goal is to share my love of Silk and Afro-Caribbean culture through my Art, while being kind to Mother Earth. Hopefully I can bring a little more Love & Light into the world.
Versatile + Eco-Chic + Everyday + Travel
All of our designs are hand-dyed, hand painted and hand sewn in small batches in Austin, TX . Our dyes and paints are non-toxic, eco-friendly and made in the USA and a few of my designs are created from repurposed silk.
Our customers love our scarves because they are so versatile. They are perfect for travel because they are so light-weight and pack conveniently. They can be worn on the plane, to a nice dinner, at a resort and around town. Our colors add a pop of style to any outfit on the beach or at a meeting.
THANK YOU SO much, from the bottom of my heart, for your follows, likes, comments and for your LOVE & SUPPORT!
I AM excited to share this journey with each of you.
One Love. ❤️
