ZOOM CLASS - Milady's Pendant

The fabulous bodice ornaments that have survived from the 18th century inspired Milady’s Brooch or Pendant Ornament. A trillion shaped CZ is set within peyote stitch then layer upon layer of peyote stitch and embellishing techniques make channels, or paths of beadwork, that hold small pearls and stones set in fine metal settings. The edges are finished with a stylized foliage design representing filigree work. A pearl encrusted dangle adds movement to the bottom of the ornament. Lavishly set, extremely rich in ornament, this piece can be a brooch or a pendant. If the wearer chooses the pendant style, then we will add a shaped bail and slide the pendant over a simple peyote stitch tube with a toggle and loop closure for a spectacular finish! For those that would prefer a brooch, we will sew a high quality pin-back to the back of the beadwork so that you can wear this ornament in 18th century style. And to make it a parure (set), a beautiful pair of pearl earrings can be added to finish the look.
