Couture Embroidery from Paris, France! This one of a kind bridal/bridesmaid hair clip is hand embroidered, with sparkling Swarovski crystals, glass beads, and pearls surrounding one large crystal. These beads are hand sewn on to organza, backed with leather and finished with a silver hair comb. The embroidered part of this hair piece measures approx. 2 1/4" x 1 3/4”
Having lived in Paris, France for over 5 years I was certifited 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 collectable Haute Couture.
This beautiful hair clip would be perfect for any bride who wants a little sparkle in her hair. Also perfect for a bridesmaid or maid of honor who wants to add a touch of sparkle.
This jewelry was made by hand in my studio and comes beautifully packaged and ready for gift giving.
