cartouches...


Let me tell you a short story ...(full of mistakes, sorry .. remember , i'm french..)


Once upon a time , a young Marquise was madly in love with her ​​young husband went to fightin Austria, every day she waits. One day, tragedy knocked at her door she learns that her husband was killed in action.
Desperate ,she die of grief, praying for him. Here is the necklace "to remember", that her sister and confidante wore every day of her life, in memory of this loving heart.


Totally invented! of course


The tubes are made ​​following the idea of ​​Robin (here her tutorial ) and my own 2 years old tutorial (lol) ( here)











and the bracelet, very unique, dentelle de calais and those words " je vous aime" "mes égarements" (i love you, my errors) from a old missal ravaged by time and probably a believer mouse... 




Thanks for looking!

Wonderful! They're like tiny messages in bottles! Both the necklace and bracelet are superb. Wonderful historical feeling. Is that some sort of clear plastic? It looks like glass but I'm guessing the bracelet must be made of something more durable?

I loved Robin's little earrings, but you took it another TWO steps. I especially love the bracelet =)) You are so clever!

Oh! That is so very special. I used to use that stuff in my designs all the time. Thanks for reminding me of that! I love the story you invented. That is my kind of romance!
Enjoy the day!

Love the necklace Esther. Really like how it looks very simple from a distance, then there is lots of texture and detail when you look at the beads up close.
Yummy!

Such pretty, original pieces (love the story as well.... I almost believed it!) Is that lace in the bracelet tube? Very, very pretty.
