From my new, Parisian inspired bridal collection! A stunning Couture, hand embroidered hair clip. This beautiful design includes Swarovski crystals surrounded by white freshwater pearls, all hand stitched onto French Lace. It is backed in white vegan leather. There is a small puff of birdcage lace and tulle that comes from the side. This hair clip measures approx. 4" x 2". (Measurement does not include the birdcage lace and tulle)
A one-of-a-kind design, this hair clip will not be re-created. Using the traditional French Haute Couture method, this hair clip is hand embroidered, each bead and crystal sewn on, one at a time. This elegant design will add some sparkle to any wedding day ensemble.
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.
