Tossed Salad for Mel

It is a year since Mel a.k.a Strumpet died. It is difficult to fathom that she is not here. But in celebrating her and marking the outrageous laughter that we shared in the creation of most of our knickers, I present 'Tossed Salad.'

This piece is very much from the hidden archives and the brief was 'The Allotment.' Vegetables came to mind, of course, and so we created a pair of knickers with a frisee lettuce complete with a velvet carrot, carried in a jade holster at the front (for the woman's pleasure) and a velvet radish, carried in a jade holster at the back (for the woman's pleasure). Each root vegetable was attached to the lettuce by a string of seed pearls. The frissee was 'open' between the legs and this entrance was also surrounded by seed pearls.

I can certainly hear Mel's laughter now.............
