I love to use vintage and antique elements in my designs. It is the quality and "patina" that these items have that intrigue me so. I also love to think that I am creating something unique for such a special occasion with these rare materials. Each piece that I make is carefully thought out to make the most of the elements chosen. Here are a few of these for your enjoyment.
Vintage ecru alencon lace trims this silk ring bearer pillow. I paired it with an ivory rose and satin double face ribbons. It measured about 8 inches square.
This is a vintage whitework that is layered over a cream dupioni silk. In the center of the pillow is a faceted mother of pearl bead. I wanted to keep the detail on this pillow simple to showcase the beautiful embroidery.
This is available for sale in my Etsy store. It is Victorian era net lace. I love the raised design and placed it over a taupe sash to bring out the detail.
