Frosted Flowers Statement Necklace

frosted flowers necklace by karen vallerius

I have a crate (yes! A CRATE!) full of beads & sequins, many of which are vintage. I had made this large white flower from antique linen a while back (I shaped the petals with curling tongs!), and decided to incorporate it into a statement necklace with a frosted flowers theme in shades of aqua & blue. To my surprise, I really enjoyed the fiddly beading (all stitched by hand) and so incorporated this beaded flower theme into my next project, a woodland wedding dress (photos coming soon x)

I made a Victoriana mori girl tiered skirt in tartans & satin and thought it would be interesting to make some Victorian purse style pockets out of velvet. I was really pleased how they turned out and will definitely be using this design detail again. x
