Barbara Bixby Paisley Designs

paisleyintroNew Barbara Bixby page added!

The paisley motif is one of the most popular of Barbara Bixby’s designs, and she has interpreted this exotic shape in many different materials.

Barbara explains: There are many theories about the original inspiration of the paisley shape. In my studies, I have learned that the shape comes from a stylized rendition of a Bodhi leaf, which comes from the tree that Buddha was said to have used for meditation.

    This is wonderful. I am not personally a big fan of “paisley” but these designs are gorgeous, and now I may “take the plunge” myself and order some of these beautiful treasures! It seems that anything Barbara designs, I come to love!
