Announcement   ******International buyers welcome, please convo for shipping quotes!******
Welcome to Clytemnestra's Closet! Come browse through for a delightful selection of handmade Victorian and French inspired millinery Cocardes, flowers and other accessories.

Cocardes are fanciful ribbon embellishments designed for hats and fashions popular in Victorian times through the 1920's, they were even used by the military to adorn uniforms. Cocarde or Coquarde is French for cockscomb - a very befitting name indeed.
Each Cocarde is based on an original Victorian design, many of these are crafted of real vintage ribbon and buttons, every creation hand folded by my own patient fingers.

Need a certain color or size? Please feel free to contact me for custom orders, it would be my pleasure to create a special item for you!

Please note that hats, clothing and handbags are used as props to show how the cocardes can be worn and are not part of the listing.

Visit my other Etsy shops:
Lamplighter.etsy.com For hand made Victorian lamp shades.

AuntiePrincess.etsy.com for an eclectic selection of vintage goods and supplies.

My sister is a fabulous ribbon artist as well, please visit her shop for a lovely assortment of hand made goodies:
ConeldasCreations.etsy.com

Please read my shop policies regarding reselling my reproduction ribbonwork as antique.

About

Ribbonwork, Cocardes, Millinery Flowers and Victorian Lamp Shades

I started my first Etsy shop when I began making Victorian lampshades in 2006. I have since added ribbonwork as my main interest and opened ClytemnestreasCloset to feature my ribbon creations.

I have learned techniques from a renowned ribbon artist and taught myself as well using ribbon art booklets from the 1920's. This has given me the skills needed to create my own designs, many are one of a kind. Enjoy!
