Custom made ornaments made from heirloom fabrics

This ornament is made using the Grandmother's bridal veil as the ornament covering, and lace, buttons and appliqués from her dress as decoration.


Here is a family ornament (a dangle for each member of your family), using vintage lace crocheted by hand in the 1930s. The dangles are made of lavender Czech glass beads (representing the mother's home town), and the Swarovski crystal pendants each represent the birth month of a family member. This family has two April (diamond), an August (green peridot), and an October (opal) birthday.


Very old and beautiful lace


This ornament was made from a grandmother's taffeta and lace bridesmaid's dress from 1954, and is draped with hand strung Czech glass beads. Each of her five granddaughters now has a prized personal reminder of her grandparent's most special day.

I designed and created these ornaments at the request of a client who wanted to include the birthstones of her grandchildren. We made one ornament for each grandchild using their specific birthstones, along with heirloom fabrics from the grandmother for the outer decoration.

Unique and lovely gifts that will be treasured for generations.
