A little lace and some fabric stiffener open new possibilities for jewelry. For this design I cut out the elements that I liked and sewed on crystals and pearls.
Creamy and delicate lace is decorated with elegant beads in this bracelet and earring set. Dashes of dusky pink sparkle from the Swarovski beads make this a sweet set you can wear in weddings, for Valentine's Day or any other time of year The patterns in the lace lay the foundation for how to add the beads, so different types of lace will inspire you in new ways.
Cut a length of lace ribbon long enough for a bracelet. Cut out your desired pattern of lace for the earrings. Use a fabric stiffener to stiffen your lace. We found lace ribbon 1 1/2 inches wide. Form the bracelet cuff around cardboard covered in plastic. Allow to dry.,
We decorated the lace with beads based on the patterns of the lace. Work with the lace you have to sew the beads on in a design you like. We sewed Swarovski 3mm Cream round pearls around the edges of the lace shape and one Swarovski 4mm Cream round pearl onto the center of the shape. Then, we added six Swarovski 4mm Vintage Rose faceted rounds around the 4mm pearl to create a flower design.
Make sure your ribbon is sized to fit as a bracelet, then attach sewing snaps to the ends of the bracelet.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
