UPDATE: The Lace Butterfly Necklaces and the Lavender Rose Earrings are now available on Ciarrai Studios
I am so excited to share these new pieces with you guys. So excited that when it rained all week (robbing me of the natural light that I like to use to photograph items), I made this Butterfly themed Treasury to help tide me over.
I really love how dainty and feminine lace applique necklaces are and so I couldn’t wait to make some myself. Of course, I have already made the Mina Harker Necklace – which also uses a lace applique but in a wildly different style. This time, I went a little softer, using small white butterflies as my focal point. I made three variations:
One with blue Swarovski pearls:
One with pink Swarovski pearls:
And one with Swarovski pearls in a mixed pastel palette of lavender, ivory and pink:
I just love how sweet these are and so versatile too! I can see them being worn with my nieces’ Easter outfits (or even just a sweet little dress). I can see ladies my own age wearing them with a pretty blouse or sweater and a pair of jeans. I can even see them working as a beautiful addition to a prom dress or bridal wear!
I have to confess that I think I may have gotten a little bit obsessed. I have more lace appliques on their way so I can make more lace necklace designs.
