From my new, Parisian inspired bridal collection! An elegant couture, hand embroidered hair ribbon or bridal sash. This beautiful design includes large crystals and can be used for either a hair ribbon or bridal sash. The beaded piece measures approx. 7.5" x 2" and is backed with leather and finished with a champagne colored ribbon to tie around the head or waist. The ribbon measures approx. 3 meters and can be cut to size.
A one-of-a-kind design, this hair ribbon will not be re-created. Using the traditional French Haute Couture method, this elegant piece is hand embroidered, each crystal sewn on one at a time. This beautiful design will add some sparkle to any wedding day ensemble whether worn as a hair band or bridal sash.
Having lived in Paris, France for over 5 years I was certified in Haute Couture beadwork and embroidery in one of Chanel's exclusive atelier houses. I have now brought these techniques to the US and created my own line to include the tradition of Haute Couture.
Each piece is hand embroidered using the Luneville embroidery technique I was taught at Lesage. Couture embroidery is seen all over the Parisian runways and I have translated what are usually seen on designs for Chanel, and Dior and created beautiful wearable jewelry and accessories.
Each sequin and bead is sewn on one at a time using a "Luneville" hook which is similar to a very tiny crochet hook. Silk organza is stretched across an embroidery frame, and the beads are stitched on from the underside of the fabric, one stitch at a time. This is truly a One of a Kind piece of collectible Haute Couture.
This jewelry was made by hand in my studio and comes beautifully packaged and ready for gift giving. My pieces are all one-of-a-kind or very limited number of pieces.
