Gorgeous as always! Heirloom quality! Love adding it to my collection!!!! N. J.
This stunning hand made beaded Victorian ornament signed original in shades of aqua, turquoise, sapphire,and navy blue with 195 hand set Swarovski crystals will take your breath away. Just a hint of copper brown and gold adds to the colors in this to give it an earthy tone within all its elegance.
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.
