‘Something old, something new, something
borrowed, something blue’ . . . the well known
wedding lucky saying.
I wanted to make a simple but pretty version
of this lovely tradition.
Every piece is different and individual so I am
photographing each one and listing by letters
A, B etc.
This one (E) has a piece of cream antique lace
that is twisted into a bow and beaded with sky blue
+ ivory seed beads.
A pretty cream ceramic heart hangs fron cream tube beads
it is made by a talented Irish ceramic artist Emer O’Sullivan.
This piece is sewn onto sweet blue and white striped ribbon.
More lace is curved around the join with twists of blue beads.
Further ivory seed beads are sewn at end of the ribbon to
make it easier to tie.
Old - lace
New - ribbon
Borrowed - you can borrow the heart for
. . . a thousand years.
Blue - seed beads + ribbon.
size : 2 inch high (5cm) approx
As all designs are made with mixtures of fabric and beads,
crystals or vintage lace - they cannot be washed.
They should be treated and worn with care so that the
delicate stitches do not snag.
When not being worn keep flat in a safe place away from
sunlight, damp, dogs, cats or children !!
Comes in a box (made from recycled material).
