Beading for Winter Formal Event

This piece is a first attempt at anecklace for a friends Black Tie Fundraiser I like to make a few options when I do custom work. The next piece has a starry Night quality, I will post pics when that is finished. I plan to gift one of these to the fundraiser, as the money will go to NJ schools.

All materials are recycled from other vintage garments and accessories.

Tattered Elegance

This statement necklace is for a friend in NYC. She has an opening to attend and wanted something spectacular. She is wearing this with a black riding jacket and lurex jeans. The beads and lace are vintage. The black lace is from a hand made mermaid dress that was worn on New Years Eve to the Limelight in NYC. The lace is going out for an encore.

A Winter Wedding

This Neck Piece is a prototype for a Winter Wedding I am working on. I dug deep into my vintage lace and pearls. I pulled out a box of vintage sequin appliques from Roth Imports. A treasure found in NYC at the Chelsea Flea Market. The box has all original packaging indicating 1092 as the date of origin. Tru 80's Glam.

The effect is very romantic and should be worn with a warm ecru strapless dress. The dress is planned to be very simple. No lace or beadwork. A simple beautiful silk shape. Inspired by vintage classic dresses.

I love being involved from the start. It gives me a chance to see down the road. This is going to be an elegant candle lit wedding. Warm and glowing.
