This is an amazing peice I have been working on around the world on my travels, NO SEWING MACHINE has been used! It is completely worked from scratch and all sewn by hand. I was inspired by all of the the colours of the circus and decided to make a victorian belle Epoque-esque type of cuff which could be worn on one arm with a corset ..which I am actually working on at present. Also you could wear it casual with jeans and top....
There is hours apoun hours of work here, many a hotel room has seen this piece manifesting!

I used vintage lace, vintage torqouise cotton velvet which I hand ruched, pale green embroidered lace from Romania, various crystal beads ,Sea Green ruched organza which I made a lovely red and pale coral rose from some Vintage wired ombre Ribbon, infact all the other flowers are made from variations of the same ribbon,the pale blue ribbon flower I have added some German vintage gold and white stamens in the middle, which are hand sewn on again.

This One of a kind unique lace and velvet cuff is made to fit the right rist only as I have hand beaded two long pale silvery blue seed bead lengths finished off with azure blue clear tear drop beads.
Around this area I have gathered and sewn different lengths of old tulle and lacey blue tendrils which hang along beside your little finger, for that lovely layered and old tattered look .Above this lies one small black green cock feather.
I chose some large creamy white Fresh Water Pearls and sewed them into the middle of the wire ombre hand made flowers, comprising of green, purple and green two tone ,navy, red and violet blue ribbon colours.
Sewn inside the middle of the darkest blue flower is a pale clear cezch blue bell bead,a pewter silver grey faceted crystal bead, large irredescent brownish and goldish green bead with a white and grey vein line piece of real Howlite stone.
The more you look the more you find, this is so avant garde.
I finished off the peice by applying some recycled mens linen red shirt fabric which has been pain stakingly sewn on around all the edges to hold everything in place to give a neat finish with tiny stitches.
The cuff fits any wrist as I have sewn Green and Red Vintage ribbon to tie in a bow as tight or loose as you like, so pretty and stunning!

The reason I don't use a sewing machine on peices like this is that I wanted to bring back and feel the nostalgia from hand sewing hundreds of years ago,to give it that authentic hand sewn feel. After all no one had sewing machines in those days!
