ITEM: ONE OF A KIND! In a French Revival manner and composed of vintage and modern day ribbon, here's a handmade ribbonwork spray (medium size) featuring 5 florals on a gentle curve. The center floral is a periwinkle purple, the shoulder flowers are baby blue, and the end flowers are lavender. Mint green leaves complete each side. At the center of the blue florals are a pair of Freshwater Cultured Pearls - yes, genuine pearls!
This particular piece was made with a Wedding Garter in mind. I did a custom spray for a lady and it worked out so well I thought I would try another. Of course, the embellishment can always be used on some other piece of clothing or lingerie.
MATERIALS USED: Modern Day Satin, C.1950 Rayon, C.1980 Silk, Modern Glass Beads, Modern Day Pearls
CONDITION: As new. From a smoke free, pet free home.
SIZE: 2-3/8" x 1" approx
FINAL COMMENTS: The applique has been entirely hand sewn with no glue (crinoline back). The piece can be used on any item and does not need to be removed for washing. However since I don't know how "old ribbon" reacts to modern day detergents, I would suggest applying the embellishment to an item with a safety pin for easy removal OR if sewn to clothing, just snip the stitches then re-sew once the piece has been cleaned.
