From my bridal collection with a Parisian flair! A beautiful sparkling silver headband featuring Haute Couture embroidery, perfect for your wedding day, bridesmaids, prom, holiday etc. Each bead, crystal and sequin is hand sewn onto vintage Parisian silk using a traditional French embroidery technique, Luneville embroidery. The embroidery is backed with leather and attached to a beautiful black ribbon. This headband comes with satin ribbons on each end for easy tying (42" long x 16mm wide; beaded portion is approximately 4" x 2" long). This little bit of beading in your hair will add some chic sophistication without being too dramatic.

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.

After moving to Paris, France in 2009 to study Haute Couture Beadwork at the prestigious atelier Lesage (an atelier owned by Chanel), I decided to design a line of jewelry inspired by what I saw on the runways of Paris. Fascinated by the many artisans still working in the craft trade who create pieces for the world of Couture fashion, I decided to shed some light on these little known atelier houses, by teaching couture beadwork and embroidery and giving lectures on the craft trade. I also incorporate these age old techniques that I learned at Lesage into my own creations. I take what I see on the runways for inspiration for my jewelry designs.

This piece was made by hand in my studio and comes beautifully packaged and ready for gift giving.
