I created this collar as a demonstration piece when I had super eyesight.
(In those days I was a Handcraft Tutor)

The cotton I used is as fine as sewing machine thread and the crochet hook was a 0.60 (fine enough to draw blood)

The main piece is made up of chains and wheels and the edging is made up separately of 9 large shamrocks (approx. 2" diam) with picot edging and linked with a flat chain.

So somebody with good eyesight could separate the 2 components again giving them more varied options for a new lease of life for this piece.

Dress up that LBD or create your own heirloom by adding motifs to that bridal/christening/communion dress.

As is the collar is 5.5" deep and measures 15.5" inside edge and 26" outer edge.

It has never been worn - just carefully stored in acid-free paper all those years.

I am endeavouring to find new homes for my lovingly created treasures and the thought of that being in some far flung exotic place would fill me with pride!

Frequently asked questions about VintageIrishDresser

Every detail possible will be discussed and approved with you prior to mailing your custom order
If in doubt about dimensions of any of my creations please ask - I reply quickly, but bear in mind our different Time Zones - Ireland is on GMT.
It is always advisable to store your jewellery in an air and light proof box or sachet as far as possible. When wearing keep free of water, soaps and cosmetics too.
Your order will for the most part arrive in an upcycled/repurposed package but I have run out of tictac boxes to recycle and have sourced tiny sturdy silver boxes for my coin jewelry. I'm now getting a lovely substitute to bubble wrap from my local furniture store. Some vintage goods will not be gift packed with safety getting priority here.
