Catarina Wedding Dress Keepsake Necklace


Looking for a special piece of jewelry to commemorate your wedding day, or gift to a friend who is getting married? Let me turn lace from your wedding dress (or the dress of a friend or relative) into a beautiful custom necklace that allows you to wear it every day. Your lace will be set into a sterling silver plated pewter pendant frame, with dangling heart, for a truly unique and beautiful necklace like no other in the world.

This piece also makes a lovely anniversary gift for a 13th "lace" anniversary, or any year. It can be made with lace or other fabric from your mother's or grandmother's wedding gown, as a way to honor her on your wedding day. The necklace could be used as a bridal bouquet memorial charm, then worn as a necklace later. Such a unique and meaningful piece, with so many possibilities.

Pendant circle is just over 1/2 inch in diameter and hangs from a sterling silver plated brass chain with tiny beads.

All that is needed to make your necklace is a 2 inch or larger square of lace or other fabric. You can choose to send your own silk or satin under layer, or ask me to use fabric from my own collection beneath your lace. Just let me know your preference in your order notes, including what color fabric if you'd like me to provide the under layer.

If you have a fabric other than lace that you'd like me to use, that is fine. I can make this necklace using any fabric, as long as it is fairly lightweight.

I will message you with the mailing address to send your fabric to upon receipt of your order.

Handmade in Vermont.
