Making jewellery from vintage fabric

My friend asked me if I could make a piece of jewellery from her mum’s vintage wedding dress.

Here is a photo, isn’t it gorgeous?

The dress and veil had a flower detail so we decided to use that for the pendant.

I added a patina so the pendant had a vintage feel.

I am really pleased with how the detail has come out.

I am currently making a few pieces like this for brides and mothers of the bride (matching earrings for your mum or bridesmaids is a great idea) and do gift vouchers for anniversaries or birthdays. If you are interested in having a piece like this made for you or a loved one, please have a look at my Etsy shop in the wedding dress section.
