Inspired by a scrap of wallpaper found in DH Lawrence’s birthplace, now a museum, this lace cuff bracelet or ‘lacelet’ is an open lace design in an ‘Art Nouveau’ style. I was commissioned by the DH Lawrence Birthplace Museum in Eastwood to create a new lace collection for their gift shop. It’s known that Lawrence’s mother made lace, possibly selling items to support the family, so it felt like a perfect fit for some of my items. Of course, visitors there are literary types, so my bookmark based on this motif is a popular choice. For variety I worked and reworked the lace until this small jewellery range was born.
There’s a lacelet, earrings and a rounded necklace in the collection. This lacelet measures approx 35mm deep by 175mm around the wrist (it can be made slightly longer on request). It fastens with a copper coloured clasp and is made from soft rayon thread. Buy this lace cuff as the perfect gift for a lover of literature! Postage is FREE within the UK!
The lacelet is avilable in the colours pictured, but if you want to order in other colours please contact me
