of lace and collars

Posted by jessica
A couple of months ago, I did a post on a pearl collar that I made. As a follow-up to that post, I wanted to share a few more collars that I have made and collected.

This neck-piece is made from a gorgeous feather-motif collar I bought from a textile shop. I had a small bag of vintage rhinestones that had been sitting in my bead supply box for some time, so I decided to scatter them along the collar. Although the rhinestones are quite small, the hint of light that they capture is quite lovely.

This is a simple collar that I made using lace trim. Nothing excites me more than browsing through sewing trims and notions. It's definitely the first place I head towards upon entering a fabric shop.

Last January, I was lucky enough to score this lovely collar at a local thrift store. It was accompanied with a tag, classifying it as a 'Belgium
Lace collar'. I was able to acquire this piece for the bargain price of $1 CAD, and I can't tell you how thrilled I was when I found it.
