Wedding collar


sketch1This autumn started with a challenge for me. I was asked to create a jewellery set for a bride using wire and the weaving technique.Colan1

Obviously, I was very happy to unleash my creativity.

 
I made a collar, a tiara and earring accordingly to the bride costume and wedding theme.sketch 2
First I spent 2-3 days drawing till I refined my sketches.

I came with this:

When I started weaving some changes appeared: I added some small beads to enrich to weaving and 2 wire colours to underline the cloth design and texture.

tiara

Tiara is a curved woven piece like a neck ruffle.

 

 

The collar is a simple, around the neck piece to underline the feminine traits and the bride beauty.choker3

I created a free form needle work with beads,

Middle Age Spring_4

In a stumpwork embroidery style I decorated the beadwork work with coiled wire making accents and interesting points.
I tatted with dark red wool the edges to approach the crewel style of the embroidery.

The laces are tatted to making the necklace adjustable. It remembers me of carnival of Venice
