delicate & faded

All things delicate and faded........

... pages from my sketch book, looking at seed heads for inspiration

... on my dressing table I have a vintage teacup with a string of pearls and a diamante bracelet. Old jewellery has a softness that I love.

I made this bag using vintage lace, pearls and seed beads.
I have a fondness for these beautiful muted tones. I've used some really special pieces of Victorian handmade lace on this bag, which works well with the background satin fabric.


  1. Oh my godness...that bag is absolutely divine.
    Beautiful work you do...and images.

  2. So wonderful, Victoria, perfectly made! It's so me, I do love pearls and lace!
