‘Something old, something new, something
borrowed, something blue’ . . . the well known
wedding lucky saying.
I wanted to make a simple but pretty versions
of this lovely tradition.
The “old” in this piece is a beautiful section of
vintage white organdy from the 1930's.
It is so sheer and fine with lovely heart embroidery.
I have rolled a small piece of modern fabric to
the top to secure it and then beaded a row of
Miyuki seed beads in milky white and pale blue.
Further drops of silver white tube beads and the tiny
seed beads across the lace just add a simple detail
. . . (the “blue”)
This is a light - Art Deco style pendant with the 1930's
lace giving it an heirloom feel - just perfect for a bride.
It hangs on a sterling silver 18 inch flat cable
link chain (the ‘new’)
If you want it to be “borrowed” - just make sure someone
else buys it for the bride !!!!
size : 65mm high x 50mm wide
As all queenofcuffs 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).
