Hand-Embroidered Soutache Bridal Set

Once upon a time a lovely bride-to-be attended the Artists in Common Showcase in Bonita Springs, Florida.  Being a peacock collector she was drawn to a peacock necklace on display. Upon inquiring she found out that it had been promised to another.

Upon speaking further realized that both the bride & groom-to-be are of Irish descent. Coincidentally the Soutache incorporated in this piece is from Ireland. I agreed to recreate the Harem Peacock in her preferred colors of white, ivory and Aquamarine blue.  


Materials: Peacock focal, Swarovski pearls and crystals, Czech glass beads, rhinestones, Soutache braid, and backed with a luxuriously smooth ultra suede. The ear wires are surgical steel.

Special Orders:

Norwegian Sun Hand-Embroidered Soutache Pendant

Get ready for Summer with this simple, yet elegant
Hand-Embroidered Soutache Pendant and matching cord necklace!

I've never been to Norway, though I may have Viking blood running through my veins since they did raid and colonize large parts of Europe in the 9th to 11th century.  But, I have been on the Norwegian Sun cruise ship sailing in the Caribbean, where the sun is is deliciously warm (hot) all year long.
