Reserved - Mauve, Burgundy and Aqua Beaded Victorian Ornament with 145 Swarvoski Crystals & Pearls
RESERVED FOR NANCY ONLY: A really unusual combination unexpectedly came together on this ornament in shades of mauve, vintage pink, burgundy, teal, green aqua and antique gold that includes unusual sequined beaded trim appliques, triple layer beaded fringe, double trims,and approximately 145 Swarovski crystal rhinestones and pearls that have been hand set in a very close knit vining and flowering patttern all over the glass ornament.
This beauty started with a 2.5 inch mauve matte finish medium sized blown glass ornament. Long eggplant and fuchsia colored 4.5 inch long pearl beaded fringe is topped with 3 inch graduated fuchsia burgundy fringe that has tiny pearls in it also, and then a short 1.5 inch mauve plum short beaded fringe. Additional fringes are on top adding to the Victorian styling..
Trims include a narrow 1/4 inch rose mauve and gold narrow gimp trim which is topped with a burgundy and metallic gold edged scalloped 1/2 inch chenille trim. The top of the ornament cap is covered in the trims as well.
Then it got interesting as I found some older mauve applique trim roses studded with aqua and fuchsia sparkling sequins and beaded with antique gold beads that I put on both sides. An antique gold beaded applique is also attached to the center back. The hand set Swarovski pearls and crystals really bring all of the colors of the ornament together in a beautifully stunning way.
The bouquet consists of mauve silk roses with tiny fuchsia stamens, burgundy organza roses with rhinestone centers, gold glittered leaves and fern branches, and touches of soft green aqua artificial pine. Accents of teal peacock feathers blend with the glittered golden fern on the bottom of the bouquet. All this topped with 7 to 8 yards of matching sheer, metallic edged, satin, and wired ribbons.
Total hanging height is 9.75 inches. It goes best on the antique gold spiral stand sold separately.
This would make a nice accent piece or gift to the bride wedding couple for a beach themed wedding. Total hanging height of this piece is 9.75 inches tall including the hanging ribbon.
A medium turquoise matte 2.5 inch matte blown glass ornament is the base for this piece accented with a skirt of graduated beaded fringe 4 inches long at the longest points and further accented with a layer of 1.5 inch short beaded fringe. A few additional strands are added to the front of the ornament cap for added layered Victorian charm.
Triple trims include a swirly narrow green teal sequined gimp trim, a brown/copper tone flower gimp trim, and a light blue shell and heart hand dyed venise lace trim over the top of the ribbon on the fringes as well as the ornament cap.
Silk flowers include a very compact bouquet of over 20 flowers with acrylic and crystal accents including light turquoise open silk mini roses, larger teal blue open roses with teal pearl stamens, tiny navy blue rolled satin bridal flowers, with touches of copper brown phlox petals and acrylic sprays in light blue and turquoise with tiny metallic gold edged green teal leaves, brown ferns and wisps of blue feathers on the bottom. All this is topped with 7 to 8 yards of coordinating satin, sheer and metallic ribbons.
The ornament itself has approximately 195 Swarovski rhinestone crystals individually hand set in colors of Pacific Opal, Golden Shadow, Blue Zircon, Light Turquoise, and Copper Bronze in a winding flower pattern that creates super sparkle and delicate detail around beaded and sequined appliques on each side and the back. Swarovski crystals are also hand set on the appliques themselves for additional sparkle.
