Welcome to the website of Jo Balzer of Balzaro Designs.

 Here at Balzaro Designs I"m passionate about beautiful textiles! I believe that each person should wear clothing that is comfortable and inspirational. Whether you are a minister looking for that special one of a kind stole , or you are a lay person wanting to wear a chalice scarf to work. Or just want to find that one of a kind gift for that special someone. I hope that you enjoy what you see  or if you want to hear about new items please join me on Facebook.



Chalice Wear are garments which has a chalice or other UU symbolism. The Jackets and Capes have been worn by Worship leaders and hosts, Music performers, Ministerial Students, or Ministers officiating at Weddings.
All of my garments are hand dyed or has some elements that are hand dyed.  Use various surface design techniques and are one of kind work of Wearable Art . The fabrics that I use are mostly silk and few items use rayon and cotton..
