Antique French lace, buttons & notions for Rubanesque
So as I mentioned yesterday that last week I put down the camera (for a few hours) and took out my jewellery supplies and started making. I had discovered a stack of antique lace appliques still intact on their handsewn starched netting. They held so many possibilities, delicate and the perfect size for earrings or pendants. I couldn't wait to make something with these but as I had boxes of ribbons to document, these beauties have been biding their time since August. So I wanted to share a few of the first creations incorporating this antique lace, some beautiful old mother of pearl buttons, jet beads and sequins.
