All of my bridal designs are handmade originals, crafted with the utmost TLC in the USA :))

There are some designers who like to keep their descriptions short and sweet, but I prefer to tell you about every little detail :).

I've always admired (and loved!) vintage Priscilla of Boston bridal veils and gowns, with their intricate applique work, mostly all done with Alencon lace. It was my inspiration for this timeless design.

This mantilla is my own design, one of a kind :) It has a distinctly Victorian flair, a total of 20 appliques. There are 16 small ones interspersed around the edge, 3 medium sized at the bottom, and a large, heavily beaded applique at the crown. A hand-strung medley of pearls, iridescent roca beads, and iridescent tube beads hang in the style of a circlet, with a faux iridescent teardrop crystal at the bottom. Where the circlet meets the lace, a Swarovski iridescent sew-on rhinestone was added on each side (these types of rhinestones are brilliant, masterfully cut, they have a hole in the center, and a tiny delica bead is used to lock them into position, so no gluing is required). The rhinestones are a generous size so that you can see them. The circlet has 4 lines of thread inside for extra stability.

This beautiful mantilla was constructed with fine Italian silk tulle, so soft and flowing. The matching lace around the edge is heavily beaded and sequined, this veil has all iridescent (or AB aurora borealis) type beadwork. The lace edge is 4" wide at its widest point, and the mantilla is 38-1/2" long (about hip length depending on your height) and 45" wide. A wire comb has been sewn at the top and will hold securely. The comb has rounded wire teeth so it won't snag the silk tulle.
