Baby Blue, White Pearl and Turquoise Elaborate Bead Embroidered Beach Themed Victorian Ornament
A new style ornament for me, this beauty starts with an 8 inch tall by 1.5 inch wide blown glass enlongated teardrop ornament in shiny light blue that has been decorated in Victorian styling to include bead and sequined embroidered appliques, a small spray of blue silk flowers, Italian hand dyed ribbon, feathers, Swarovski crystal rhinestones, glass seed beads and pearls and crystal beaded drops including a blue turquoise starfish. This would be a great decoration for a beach loving person or wedding gift or decor.
Pale blue embroidered appliques were individually carefully cut and bead embroidered with additional glass seed beads, crystal beads and pearls then carefully glued into place and embellished with Swarovski quality leaded glass crystal rhinestones around the edges and also inside the appliques. An additional blue flowered ornaments has been layered in this mix as well. A small boho style hand dyed Italian ribbon bow in shades of blue and turquoise with metallic silver accents the top of the ornament along with turquoise and white pearl organza rosette trim, accented down the side with wired blue turquoise and silver crystal sprays, blue acrylic sprays, 3 whispy small blue lilies, a sprig of Capri blue glittered berries and a blue feather that all intertwine and are woven together with additional glass seed beads, crystal beads and a blue turquoise crystal teardrop along with a blue AB crystal starfish charm. Another blue crystal teardrop is sewn to the bottom along with a Swarovski white crystalized pearl and a flash Blue Zircon AB 2X Swarovski crystal bicone. Swarovski is the finest made crystal in the world with machine faceted beads cut with the precision of a diamond.
I initially came up with this style of ornament thinking it would be less expensive and timely to make than my regular ornaments, but given that I can't seem to make anything very simple, this ended up involving a lot more time and almost just as many crystals, pearls and beads. Nonetheless, I love the end result and hope that you will too as more will be forthcoming, some more simple and many more complex.
This piece will make a statement wherever you display it and is so pretty, you will probably want to leave it up year around. it is initialed by me under the flowers at the top as all my ornaments are, a custom that began as a result of a customer's request. Every ornament comes in its own white gift box with a bow in matching ribbons ready for gift giving. Shipping costs and upgrades are available at checkout. These are one-of-a-kind ornaments and will be heirlooms in your Victorian collections. They make great gifts, room decorations, table decorations for weddings or collectors pieces. Even though they are made from glass ornaments, they are far sturdier decorated and sure to bring years of enjoyment. The ornaments stand is NOT included and unfortunately are no longer available for purchase anywhere that I am aware of. It will hang beautifully from the ceiling or window, or even under a countertop with a cup hook. It will also look great on your Christmas tree.
