The cuff on the far left is my white and cream confection created on a piece of a linen dish towel with layers of hand crocheted vintage lace, cream tatting and filet lace edgings all topped off with various mother of pearl buttons and fresh water pearls. Snaps on the ends attach the cuff for wearing. Here is a close up.
THese cuffs are meant to have a Shabby Chic sort of elegance to them, at least in my interpretation, so you will see frayed edges and some unfinshed seams.
I had sun dyed this cloth using a vintaqge plastic doily as a mask and the ornages and pinks that resulted proved a ery colorfull background with lots of textural interest. To this I added some dyed lace and some hand crocheted edging from an old pillow case and some beautiful pink arigated tatting form an old hankie.
I lined this cuff with more of the sun dyed cloth.
I alos created some new earrings using vintage red buttons . Previously, I hae made this design using mother of pearl buttons, but these are specail for Valentine gifting.
We will see how folks visiting the Emporium at Liberty Town react to the Art Quilts to Wear!! I am planning on crafting several more to post on my Etsy site.
