LE JARDIN D'ÉDEN


LE JARDIN D'ÉDEN
Collar Necklace
Piece Unique


Entirely hand embroidered, hand beaded and hand-sewn .



I made the 3D bird with cotton fabric and I embroidered it with wool threads and vintage Rosary glass beads , made in France in the 1930s + aluminium beads from 1940s.


This necklace is comfortable to wear : between the front and the lining , i use felt , to give its shape and thickness .
These 2 parts are hand-sewn together.



Vintage Kimono fabric from 1970s, bright floral pattern , typically Japanese.
I embroidered the motifs with multicolor cotton and wool threads .


Tassels are made with lampwork glass beads from India , and wools knotted.


Closed on the neck by a magnetic snap fastener : a very easy to fix it .


Lining is a vintage Indian silk , printed flowers.


DIMENSIONS :
Neck circumference 17.75 inch // 45 cm.
From the Front neckline to the end of the tassels  bottom : 17 inch // 43cm.
From the back of the neck to the end of the tassels bottom : 23 inch // 58 cm

For information , I am a "petite size" ( 5'2" // 1m59 ) , wearing a small FR 36 // US petite size S / 4 .
My neck circumference is 12 inch // 30,5 cm .

If you think my necklaces are too much big ( maybe on me because my petite size , but I love that , xxl necklaces ) , if you are more taller than me , the result will be different ....
