MARIJE'S BRIDAL NECKLACE

Two-tone Raw Silk Stitched Necklace
 

 

< Image shows work in progress with detail of original bridal silk fabric

Marije requested a necklace based on a bracelet she saw on my stand at a fair. She loved the contrast of rich green and red in this bracelet and had chosen a bridal outfit with similar colours. We formed this commission through emails, mobile phone images from her family home in the Netherlands and studio visits with her maid of honour here in the UK.  We created a piece I made from the off-cut of her bridal skirt with an addition of contrasting red fabric to wear on her wedding day. Marije wanted a special necklace she could wear after the big day and so we always kept this in mind when creating this piece.
